"The true purpose of the painter is simply to reproduce in other minds the impression which a scene has made upon him. A work of art is not to instruct, not to edify, but to awaken an emotion..." George Inness
Painting is a life-long journey to find the subjects that awaken this emotion, and my desire to share that emotion with you. The work cannot be a copy of what's before me, but a distillation of the scene, not painting what I see, but what I must make others see.
My Maine summer studio allows time on the islands and land trusts...always challenged by Maine's beauty, diversity and its amazing light.
The work is framed and available for purchase, and I welcome questions about my creative process or for details about a painting you may have an interest in...
Shown in galleries, juried art shows, and corporate venues, the work has received awards in three mediums. I now paint exclusively with acrylic, working with multiple layers of color, allowing me the potential for greater spontaneity and truth telling while capturing the scene before me.
Archived work in private collections is available on request and I am happy to create a commission just for you.
e-mail me to be added to the list when new work is added to the site...
