Her work has been shown various places including: Dolby Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco, Foundation 3.14 in Norway and Fashion Moda, New York. She has received a N Y S C A Independent Artist's Grant and is the collection of the DIA Foundation. She is a member of Graphic Arts Workshop a printmaking cooperative in San Francisco and is currently on the board of directors of ArtSpan which organizes a city wide open studio.
My etchings often examine cities and people in cities. These are generally places I have lived including New York, Germany and San Francisco. I have been influenced by Ruysdael, Jaques Callot, other artists of the 18th Century, and Japanese prints among other things. To collect information for my prints I make drawings on the street and in public places such as hotels.
