Books and Ladders

As a child, I was shy and happiest to be on my own and use my imagination. My favorite places to go were the public library, the pet store, and the stationery and art supplies store.

Dateline: Princeton

People in my family have a knack for finding the right words and for making things without a pattern.

I’m inspired daily by my eccentric house, designed and built by my father.

Folk modern art

Though I experiment in many styles and media, I’m best known for working light over dark, and for drawing upon fairy tale motifs.

Work in Progress

Lately, I've had the most fun painting with Posca pens over acrylic gouache and stitching on felt with embroidery floss.
