” 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

ABOUT MY ARTWORK AND PROCESS

I integrate a variety of processes into my studio practice including painting, printmaking, and collaging. Importantly, I make art that invites us to look closely. Seeing artwork is a process of uncovering layers of meaning–it can be a process of discovery. 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.

HONORS

Over the years I have exhibit my artwork in venues throughout the Northeast and beyond. Honors I have received include “Best in Show” and Curator’s Choice at the Harlow. Currently, my artwork is in the permanent collections of the University of Maine, The National Park Service at Schoodic Institure, and the Midcoast Senior Health Center. In addition, my artwork has been featured in Maine Magazine, the Women Artists Datebook, Still Point Arts Quarterly, and other select publications.
