My studio practice is paper collage. I cut and paint papers. I also paint with acrylic on canvas and wood panel. All my imagery is geometric abstraction, sometimes with squares and triangles; more recently with circles and half-circles in a series titled Curvy Geometric. I’m exploring how shapes share space. My work is mostly B&W. I have a studio in a converted industrial building called Media Loft, at 50 Webster Ave. in New Rochelle, NY. I fell in love with the space as soon as I walked into the studio and saw the industrial Y-shaped structural beams that support the tall ceilings. In nearby Pelham, NY, I teach collage to adults at the Pelham Art Center. My teaching focuses on color and design and the art history of collage. I write a blog The Art of Collage, and am doing research for a book about women who do collage, from contemporary practice back as far as the 18th century.
