""We work in the dark - we do what we can - we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art." Henry James
My journey began studying oil 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.
I have been privileged to travel the country from the northeast to the southwest, experiencing the wonders of nature to capture on canvas... both plein air and in my summer and winter studios.
My midcoast Maine studio in Newcastle provides me visits to the islands and land trusts where I can explore and find exciting new subjects, continuing my journey of growth and knowledge. These special places deserve to be protected for the next generation to experience. This is the role of the painter...to find these places and share the emotion and moment so others may seek them out and cherish them as well.
Thank you for sharing the work with me, visit often as new work is always on the easel...what's next?
