I am an associate professor of art at The Ohio State University Mansfield where I teach image-based studio art courses. My digitally manipulated photographs have been exhibited across the United States and I have received several grants for my creative activity, including a recent Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women Grant for Research on Women, Gender, and Gender Equity. My teaching and research have been recognized with several awards, including the OSU Mansfield Campus Award for Excellence in Scholarship and the OSU Mansfield Campus Award for Excellence in Teaching. I received my BFA from the University of Kentucky and my MFA from The Ohio State University. I currently live in Hilliard, Ohio with my husband, kids, and cat.
