I began my journey studying oils at the Ridgewood Art Institute, following the principles of Frank Vincent DuMond,  noted American impressionist and teacher. This beginning encouraged me to study new mediums, including pastel and acrylic with talented painters who shared their gifts and knowledge.

From my summer studio I spend time each year on Maine's islands and land preserves finding new places and subjects ....  always challenged by Maine's beauty and diversity.

A shout out goes to my collectors who have encouraged my painting endeavors and hope I have shown continued growth on this wonderful journey we have shared together.
