To-Ree-Nee began acting at the Providence, Rhode Island, Free School and went on to do roles with the Young Shakespearean Theatre while in high school. She began studying ballet, modern and jazz at the age of 14, and was already playing guitar.
At 16, she began to perform professionally as a singer/songwriter, appearing at venues adjacent to the Newport Jazz Festival, and soon was opening for Larry Coryell, Brownie McGee and Sonny Terry, performing her own material.
After studying illustration and painting at the Philadelphia College of Art, To-Ree-Nee threw the I Ching and undertook a life-changing journey to the Southwest, ending up in Tucson, where she has worked with Arizona Theatre Company, Ododo Theatre Company, and Amerikan Hoo-Doo Theatreworks.
In 1993, she traveled as Artist-Ambassador to Pecs, Hungary—sister city to Tucson—where she conducted master classes in performance and painting.
She has also appeared in Tucson productions at AKA Theatre, Borderlands Theatre, Arizona On Stage and Beowulf Alley, as well as at the Invisible Theatre, which also presented her one-woman show, “Walking Between Worlds”, in 2003. More recently, she has studied acting with Phil Bennett.
As a dancer, To-Ree-Nee was seen in the Great Performances broadcast production of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company’s “The Last Supper at Uncle Tom’s Cabin/The Promised Land”, and has been a guest artist with ORTS Dance, Liz Lerman, and R. Carlos Nakai.
In addition to being an award-winning visual artist who has won multiple commissions for public art projects, she is currently recording her first album of original songs, which will be released soon.
