“New Topographies” (2018) is a mixed-media (watercolor, drawing, fabric, embroidery, handmade paper, cyanotype, xerox transfer) series of 10 that explores changing landscapes. Landscapes that were once clean and crisp get messy and horizon lines bleed into vast, open skies. Making mistakes morphs our terrain into fresh habitats. Each piece is 13” x19” on watercolor paper.
Clouds of Gratitude

"Remnants: An Alphabet Sampler" (2017)
This piece was a part of the exhibit, "Mark My Words" at the Palm Beach Cultural Council in 2017.
My piece is a contemporary version of a Victorian sampler. With embroidery, collaged fabric remnants and watercolor, drawing and mixed media on paper, I am seeking to create my own alphabet of memories through each individual letter as well as the whole group. “Remnants..” is comprised of 26 lettered mixed media solutions, 13” x 19” each.

In 2019, I was the Co-Curator to the exhibit, “Modern Love” at the Palm Beach Cultural Council.
Love is a universal language—whether it’s between two people, the world around us, or even self-love—this complex emotion spans cultures and defines who we are. In this exhibition, there are representations of all facets of love, as a concept, represented in many ways: color, sensation, awareness, empathy or even through nature, technology, dance and beyond. Twenty Palm Beach County artists will be sharing their love in this exhibition,.
