Upcoming Exhibitions:

I will have work in 2 locations at the 2014 South End Art Hop in Burlington. The main event will be this weekend, September 5-7, but the exhibitions will be up all month.

I will have an installation, including drawings and a sculpture, in Of Land & Local at Burlington City Arts. The opening reception is September 19th from 5-8 pm and the exhibition is up through November 15th.


Kasini House ARTSHOP has released a multiple based on my monoprints. This installation in a box contains twenty-seven cards one can arrange at their own discretion to recreate my series, Captain’s Log. It has been released as part of their Fresh Number Series. ARTSHOP started in 2004 as a way of organizing, exhibiting, and sharing the by-products and small objects of contemporary visual artists.

I will have 2 drawings in the exhibition, It's Black & White, at Studio Place Arts in Barre VT. The exhibition will be on view from April 15 - May 31, 2014.

I am a part of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) Creative Ground Database.

As a part of the Southern Graphics Council International 2014 Printmaking Conference, I am included in the Caring for the Commons Portfolio which will be exhibited at California College of the Arts, Oakland CA (as well as in their permanent collection.) Prints from the portfolio will also be in the permanent collection of the SGC International Print Archive, housed at the Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw GA.

I am now a featured artist on the Vermont Art Guide Artist Database!

For the month of January, I will be doing an artist residency in printmaking at the Vermont Studio Center. It is a good time to hunker down, stay warm, and make art. Hopefully I will have lots to update on my site after!

The annual South End Art Hop in Burlington Vermont is September 6-8. It is the largest exhibit of visual art in Vermont. I will have work at VCAM, 208 Flynn Avenue, which is up until November. I will also be in an exhibit with other Burlington City Arts folks at 339 Pine Street. Hope you can come to the Art Hop and see lots of great art next weekend!

Last year I was in a printmaking course at MassArt, and starred in a little video they made on the Continuing Education Program. My documentary debut! Take a look!

From May 30 - July 5, 2013, I will have an installation on view at the Montserrat College of Art Frame 301 Gallery in Beverly MA. The gallery is a storefront window, viewable 24/7. The installation will be a 3-D manifestation of my Celebration print series. Check out their blog for more information or to view past exhibitions.
