Although I was taught painting by Abstract Expressionists, my years living abroad opened me to other perspectives and local histories of art, an experience which shaped not only my approach to painting, but my research interests as well.
Thus, my interest in expatriate experience and artists’ lives led me to working with creative case studies, raising questions about expatriate experience as a creative construct. The relevance of nationality, gender, culture, race, and social context to the professional development of artists’ careers is undeniable; comparisons of artistic and professional development of different generations of American women artists in post-WW II Europe led to questions about experiences of artistic mentorship and support. My recent interests have led me to research African American expatriate artists in Paris and Scandinavia after the Second World War.
