Pentimento is Italian for repentance. It also denotes traces of previous work in a painting, where the artist changed her mind, that are visible when viewed using infrared reflectography. The resulting image is called a reflectogram. I like to play with this concept of layering and alteration in my work.
My chapbook Pentimento was the winner of the Gold Line Press competition and will be published Fall 2o18.
I have an MFA in Writing and Literature from Bennington College and a BA in Art History from Smith College.
I am currently a PhD student at Oklahoma State University.
