the journey       

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. I am hopeful that my paintings offer a glimpse of the myriad preserves and land trusts I visit each year and my interpretation excites and inspires visits to these magical places.

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.
