From my summer studio in Newcastle, Maine I explore the stunning midcoast...its islands and rocky coastline and hike the many land trusts and preserves...discovering new places that reflect on the diversity these coastal communities and dedicated organizations protect and preserve.
Each painting is based on a real place, a moment that I have experienced and been inspired by...when I can share this moment with you nothing is more rewarding --what a marvelous high.
First instruction in oil was at the Ridgewood Art Institute, and with discovering new mediums, I worked in pastel where the work was juried into art shows in six states for fifteen years. Acrylic is now my medium of choice and continues to excite and challenge.
The work has been shown in galleries, corporate venues, juried art shows and publications, with recognition and awards in three mediums.
Archived work is available on request.
Work shown on the site is available through the winter studio in New Jersey (201-666-4630) and my summer Newcastle, Maine studio (207-586-5234) which is open by appointment.
Gallery inquiries regarding representation are welcomed...
