” My artwork is about empathy—for ourselves, our stories, and for the planet. When we spend time with art that moves us, we experience our shared humanity and deepen our connection to the natural world.” RB, 2024


I am a mixed-media artist. Mixed-media means that I integrate a variety of processes into my studio practice including painting, printmaking, and collaging. Importantly, I am committed to creating art that invites us into a deeper relationship with nature–our own, and that of the world around us. Additionally, I strive to make art that can give us solace and fuel our hope. While my artwork veers towards abstraction, you can usually find references to the familiar among the brushstrokes, shapes, and colors in my compositions. My favorite materials are acrylic paints, hand-painted papers, charcoal, and glue.


Over the years, my artwork has been exhibited in the Northeast and beyond. I have received many honors, including “Best in Show” and “Curator’s Choice”. I participate in group exhibitions at River Arts which change monthly. In addition, I am represented in several permanent collections including the University of Maine and Midcoast Senior Health. What’s more, my work has been published in Maine Magazine, the Women Artists Datebook, Still Point Arts Quarterly, and other select publications.


I show my work in midcoast Maine and beyond. For current shows, please check in with my blog. Lastly, I offer archival digital prints in a variety of sizes. Please use my Contact page to order a print, schedule a studio visit, and for all other inquiries. Thanks for visiting!
