She has shown extensively in various venues including galleries, museums, group collaborations and solo exhibits and is part of several private collections in the US and abroad. She is currently represented by SHOH Gallery, Berkeley, CA and Mary Praytor Gallery, Greenville, SC.
Over the past few years I have worked on a series around swimmers, pools and water.
The swimmers plunge into or emerge out of the water, like the constantly changing moments in any given day; the effort to swim up and out and to breathe. Sometimes they are anonymous figures clustered or alone. At other time there are faces that tell a story. These figures and portraits are about entropy and the history they hold. Despite what life has given them they are still standing strong.
