I have long loved and been involved with visual imagery. I majored in art history as an undergraduate, did several years of graduate studies in the field, and served for a number of years as picture editor for an art encyclopedia in New York City. I subsequently earned a Ph.D. in psychology, where I continued to explore areas related to art and imagery, focusing on the psychology of art, visual thinking, and the study of dream imagery.
In the studio arts, I have studied traditional Japanese woodcut printing with master printmaker Ansei Uchima, and more recently with pastel artists Robert Carsten and Virginia McNeice. I am a member of the Vermont Pastel Society and an associate member of the Pastel Society of America.
Juried exhibits include the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT, the National Northeast Pastel Exhibit in Old Forge, NY and the Vermont Pastel Society. Solo exhibits include the Martha Canfield Library in Arlington, Vermont and The Dorset Theater, Dorset, Vermont. This past summer (2015) I was honored that my work Nantucket Marsh was awarded Best of Show at the Vermont Pastel Society exhibit at the Southern Vermont Art Center.
