My small works are also shown at Gifts at 136 at 136 Main Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543 - 207-563-1011...a most wonderful place to visit!
I began to paint in oil at the Ridgewood Art Institute following the teachings of Frank Vincent DuMond, one of the most influential teacher-painters of the 20th century. Over time I discovered the medium of pastel creating award winning still lifes. Wanting to work in landscape I reached out to contemporary landscape painters taking workshops in the southwest, New England and the New York area.
Continuing this journey of growth and discovery I now work in acrylic, so enjoying this challenging medium using the Munsell color palette. Maine provides limitless subjects, there is never enough time or places to discover.
The work has been juried into shows along the east coast from Maine to Virginia with representation in galleries and corporate venues, gaining recognition and awards in three mediums...the journey continues... what's next...
Archived work is available on request.

My work can be seen at my gallery/studio at 10 Stony Ridge Lane, Newcastle, ME 04553 by appointment from May 15-October 31. Please call 207-586-5234 (land line). I am painting in the studio most every day, but if out sourcing new subjects, don't want to miss your visit.
The gallery is located on eight acres, with stone walls and flower gardens. The four-mile, seven minute ride off of Route 1 follows the Sheepscot river. The paintings represent 16 years of capturing Maine and offer a diverse selection of Maine subjects from my visits to its islands, land trusts, and the rocky coast.
