My first Art Show in New York, NY

At age 72 I have been “discovered” as an Outsider ArtistOutsider’s work is in a “raw state, uncooked by cultural and artistic influences”.

I have always drawn, but for most of my life, I never saw myself as an artist. Artists went to art school, while I trained in Land Use Planning and Forestry. I pursued a lifetime of environmental and community activism and was mother to six children; being an artist was not part of my narrative. However, I decided to return to college at age 67, and there my story changed. I was studying music history at Ramapo College of New Jersey when, by accident, the college’s Gallery Director saw my portfolio of hand-sewn fabric collages, and promptly offered me a solo show. With that show, I gave myself permission to add the calling of the artist to my self-story; I have been answering that call ever since.
