Born in 1967 in Chicago, while still an undergraduate, I developed a body of work photographing the Pro-Choice movement in Chicago, Milwakee, Waashington D.C. and New York City. In 1992 I moved to New York's East Village to persue my Masters of Fine Arts Degree at The School of Visual Arts where I studied with Lisa Spellman, Sarah Charlesworth and Nan Goldin. During that time I interned at Pace/McGill Gallery and for Historian, Naomi Rosemblum while she wrote her book A History of Women Photographers (Abbeville Press). My intial post-graduate work was immersed within the global internet art movement where I created several internet specific art works such as: net.works + avatars, distance and Re:mote_Corp@REALities. After 9/11 I focused my attention on mediated representations and coverage of war. Currently, my work explores symptoms of mental illness, side effects of prescription medications and the therapeutic qualities of the artistic process.

Since 1991 I have exhibited work in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and Internationally. My work has been on view at  The New Museum, NY; The NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, FL; Museo Nacional Centro de Art Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; Museu do Essencial e do Alem Disso, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, England; San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA; Centre Cultural de la Fundació "la Caixa," Barcelona, Spain; The Kitchen, New York, NY.
