Side view of the 1923 building in Everett, WA now undergoing renovation after years of uncertainty about its future. Is in the Hewitt Ave Historic District. The side view gives a sense of scale from the window reflection of neighboring buildings. Urban Interventions Portfolio. Framed as 20" x 16".
I am drawn to the inherent beauty in a fleeting situation...what passes from memory almost instantly. I consider events shared but not necessarily noticed by the accidental onlooker. My work concentrates on a narrative...whether the subject is urban redevelopment, vernacular or contemporary culture or the roots of one's history. Recent projects include documentary notations about areas redefined by economic trends. Images may include text and/or be built in composited layers to add detail and dimension.
My roots are East Coast, working/middle class and ethnic. Grew up in turmoil of earlier wars, Civil Rights and the Women's Movement. Journeys to antique shops introduced me to the visual arts but my sensibility was informed by the political climate and social issues of the time. Museums and art centers became hives for my imagination, curiosity, interest in history and eventually places of employment.
Moved to Seattle in 1990. Affiliated with Gallery 110, a non-profit and currently on the Board of Directors. Also show with Black Lab Gallery in Everett and other venues in the Northwest.
