Once, while cleaning a closet, I realized I had diaries dating back to when I was nine. I didn't want them to be read, but I also I wondered what could come from randomly rearranging the words I’d written. So, I shredded some pages, and worked them into my collages, paintings, and artist books. Layer by layer the sentences become abstracted from their original context and gained new meaning. I began writing, erasing, and using words and images from magazines and newspapers to explore the interplay of words and color and form sometimes abandoning language altogether. My collages have been evolving ever since.


Creativity molded me from the start and helped me make sense of the world. I dreamed of becoming a writer and studied languages and linguistics. In addition to my art practice I write poetry and creative non-fiction.


My artwork has shown in New York at The Center for Book Arts, The National Academy School, Sarah Lawrence College, The Kitchen, and Soundtrack F&T. I received The 2019 Gurfein Writing Fellowship for memoir/creative non-fiction. I live in upper Manhattan.
