"A magpie by nature, and science geek at heart."

The blurb: I am an artist and professional photographer living and working in Massachusetts. Much of my time is focused on the arts  community in Fitchburg, MA where I try to create bridges between business, local government and resident Creatives. I firmly believe in the power of art to strengthen communities and transform public spaces.  My personal work is varied in medium and is inspired by imagination, perception and play.

Technical points: I earned my B.S. in Communications Media/Photography from Fitchburg State University in 2002, and my M.F.A in Visual Arts from Lesley University’s College of Art And Design (LUCAD)  (Boston) in 2009.  I currently work as a Photo and Media Specialist in the Communications Media Department at Fitchburg State University. My work is exhibited regionally and various galleries throughout the United states. 

Abbreviated me:  Teacher, Lecturer, Panelist,  Painter, Potter, Waitress, Costumer, Docent,  Dancer, Palm Reader, Photo Lab Manager,  Martial Artist, Sensei, Student, Photographer, Artist, and Arts Organizer.

I Have Worked With

  • October 2014

    I joined the Fitchburg Cultural Council in 2014 and I am currently the Council Chair.

    The Fitchburg Cultural Council is committed to supporting diverse and inspiring programs for its residents. These programs: arts, science and humanities provide cultural enrichment in the everyday lives of our community. We serve as a conduit for conveying artistic and culturally based activities through community programs and grant solicitation. The selection of recipients and awarding of funds for grant recipients is primarily made possible from resources from the Massachusetts Cultural Council as well as fundraising endeavors and other charitable donations.
