Uehling received her BA in Studio Art from Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts. Intermittently, she attended the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. Later, she studied at Ox-Bow Summer School, Saugatuck, Michigan; Atélier Nord, Oslo, Norway; and a print workshop in London, England. Her prints have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her current series of cast paper, bronze-sprayed pieces are made from a mold of a window frame from an old (ca. 1830) schoolhouse in the former East Germany. The windows are a metaphor to explore and illustrate the inscrutable partiality of any glimpse into the ambiguous world around us.
Uehling's work is found in over 30 permanent collections including: the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Gallery of Yugoslav Portrait, Tuzla, Yugoslavia; the Museum of the City of New York, New York; Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield, England; Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, England; and the Fleming Museum, University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont.
Her selected solo exhibitions include: Galerie Bremer, Berlin, Germany, 1988; Peacock Printmakers, Aberdeen, Scotland, 1984; Change of Place, Main Gallery, Memorial Union, University of Wisconsin, Madison, 1984; American Center, USICA, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 1983-'84; Sad Art Gallery, Yugoslavia, 1983-'84; and Ripon College, Ripon, Wisconsin, 1978.
