Depp received her BFA from Cooper Union and an MFA from Rutgers University. She embarked on a lifetime of reconciling her commitment to political and conceptual concerns to her innate painter’s sensibility. She currently lives, works, and exhibits in the Hudson Valley, in addition to sharing a digital sketchbook called Suburban Scrawl via social media. She teaches drawing to incarcerated teens and also makes live event paintings at weddings and special events. Her paintings and mixed media work express the anxiety of a culture awaiting rapture in a collapsing landscape while eating slow food in the fast lane.
