Experiments in Art


After art school at Syracuse University, I landed in
New York City in 2000 and began to blend my art
and upbringing as a descendant of woman quilters.
I created fabric, 3D movable sculptures and showed them with the artist group Skewville. The sculptures proved difficult for transport or storage after a while,
I began working on flat art pieces instead using fabric as the medium still. From 2002-2015, my work was shown in various galleries and occasionally adding
art to the streets under the nom de plume Pufferella.
I also founded, curated and operated Orchard Street Art Gallery in Lower East Side, NYC (2002-2007) and Factory Fresh in Brooklyn (2008-2012) with my
previous partner Ad Deville of Skewville.

Continuing to use fabric as the base, I now add ink and paint to create my final artwork scenes I call "Sewn Paintings". This additional material has allowed the work to take a new direction and evolve into its current form shown recently at Art Fairs and Juried Shows. Currently working out of an art studio in Greenpoint, BK at an old rope factory, has allowed me to make larger artworks.
