Her artwork considers how color, form, and line metaphorically measure the human condition as experienced through the body. She earned a B.F.A. in studio art from James Madison University and an M.F.A. in painting from The University of Pennsylvania. Additionally, she was a student resident at The New York Studio School where she worked with second generation abstract expressionists: Charles Cajori, Mercedes Matters, and Rosemarie Beck. Her artwork has been exhibited across the country with solo shows in New York City, Philadelphia, Virginia, and Minnesota. In 2017 her solo show titled "Lightbox" consisted of brightly colored cardboard constructions and stacked floor paintings at Hood Gallery at Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia. Recently, she has been making painted constructions based off her lived experience of architectural forms and their relationship to the landscape.  Most recently her work was included in a group exhibition titled: "X Marks the Spot, Women of the New York Studio School." She is former owner of Yellow Door Art Studios, a community art school, where she developed an art curriculum with lesson plans for early childhood and K-12. Currently she is developing a course titled: "How to See" for The Great Courses. Glendening Annex Department of Art & Art History Sue Johnson America/New_York public
