June 2011

NY, NY –  “I am originally from Massachusetts where I received a B.F.A. in Painting from the Swain School of Design in New Bedford. I received my M.F.A. in Painting from Parsons School of Design in New York. I am an Alumni of Yaddo Artist residency from 2001 and a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts grant in 2005. Since that time I have exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in galleries such as the Islip Art Museum, White Box gallery, the Christopher Henry Gallery, and in \”Shimmering Light Across American Culture\” from the collection of Susan Brynteson at The Grolier Club NY in 2008 featuring Yaddo artists. Most recently my work hung in \”The Antidote\”, a group show at Claire Oliver Fine Art gallery in NY in 2010.
     My next solo exhibition opens at Claire Oliver Fine Art at 513 West 26th Street in New York on January 6th 2011. A profile of my work will be featured in Zink magazine coming out this winter. My choice of months is first July, then August, then September. I heard about Millay through my representative, Claire Oliver.”
