I was born in the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire in 1958, where my love for nature began. I studied at Rhode Island School of Design and recently under the supervision/tutoring of Stas Borodin, renown Russian Impressionist. After college I made my home in Maine where I remain today. The beauty of my surroundings from inland lakes to the Atlantic coast has been a constant source of inspiration.
I'm a representational oil painter represented by several galleries including Blue Heron Gallery in Wellfleet, Ma on Cape Cod and The Wright Gallery in Cape Porpoise, ME. I focus on capturing the play of light and shadow and the subtle movements found in nature. Being a colorist, I use a variety of shades in layers to create emotion. My artistic signature is defined by my color palette and the soft peaceful relaxing qualities of my work. I paint from the heart and my deep affinity for nature pours itself on canvas. With a multitude of color and playful brushstrokes, this deep appreciation for nature is visible down to the minutest detail and resonates with a heavenly calmness that can penetrate the soul.
I am an active member of several art associations where I exhibit regularly. I volunteer my time, have curated shows, teach and been selected to be on the exhibitions committee for the past three years. I began an art marketing group and am in daily contact with as artist in France where I plan to travel and paint someday. My dream has been to travel and paint in foreign lands to experience all that nature and the various cultures have to offer. I am beginning to realize some of this dream, as I will be exhibiting in Saint-Petersburg, Russia in May 2008. Through my art, I want to help people see the wonderful beauty this world has to offer, which is often overlooked.
