As an art historian with a focus on American art, I've traveled quite a bit around the United States. The Pacific Northwest is one of my favorite parts of this country. I am amazed by the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest, from the ocean's coastline to rainforests and the snow-capped mountains, and I'm always impressed by how environmentally conscious the people who live there are. That being said, there's nothing like a visit to Manhattan, Chicago or Washington, D.C., to energize the spirit.
What I Love About Emmanuel:
Boston has a rich and vibrant art community. I love that Emmanuel College students have access to all that this community has to offer, from art exhibitions to lectures by preeminent artists from around the world. I love that Emmanuel College faculty and students contribute to this community as does the Emmanuel College Artists Residency Program.

My area of specialty is American art from the first half of the twentieth century, and my scholarship focuses on American women artists and craft production from this time period. I have also written on American Indian art and the relationship between American modern art and Catholicism.
My book titled The Modern Embroidery Movement: Marguerite Zorach, Georgiana Brown Harbeson and Their Collaborators will be published by Bloomsbury Publishing with a release date of November 2018. The book examines the modernist inspired embroideries of a group of American women artists who argued through their embroideries and their writing that embroidery should be taken seriously as an art form. I have developed a new course on the History of American Craft in which I will have an opportunity to share this research with students.
