There seems to be an endless supply of images seeking residency in my visual memory.

Electrical towers floating by on long drives. Mounds of moss on the road to Sunburg. Pink Hello Kitty boots. All those birthday balloons suspended overhead. The filigree my husband keeps painting, in pink, gold leaf and blue. My son’s free National Geographic world map plotted out with fictitious, future adventures. The clouds overhead when we took the boat out for summer’s last picnic lunch. Old charts and new math. Pink graffiti on printer paper taped to the dining room walls, salon style.

My work is informed and influenced by all of this. An attempt to organize the poetics of this pictorial chaos through the exploration of abstracting and creating a personal visual etymology.


In addition to my personal studio practice, I serve as an adjunct instructor for St. Cloud State University and Ridgewater College.
