Artist Statement

My desire to become an artist was inspired by growing up near New York City, the center of the art world. As a teen, I studied at the Art Students League of New York. As a young woman, I travelled widely to experience diverse cultures, particularly in Central America. My focus on painting on paper and handmade paper is based on enjoying the freedom of these media. I made large scale works in handmade paper at Carriage House Paper and Rugg Road studio, after my education at the SMFA.

I have exhibited widely and my work is in many private collections. I participated in the Fitchburg Art Museum’s show “America Mourns, Artists Respond.” I engaged themes of freedom in my show “Collage for Change” at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge. I had a solo show of large scale abstract paintings on paper entitled “Color Fields” at the former NEIA. I was one of few non-Asian artists included in two exhibits with MITHAS, the MIT and Harvard South Asian Group. I had an exhibit in New York City at the Agora Gallery, affirming my connection to New York.

I have embraced art as an essential means of connecting across cultures and a source for unity and good.

Thank you to the Brookline Arts Center and Brookline Open Studios and Marketplace for the opportunity to show some of my art and be a part of the community of artists in Brookline.
