My connection to nature in my rural environment, close to all that I love, provides spiritual nourishment and creative inspiration that I share in my painting.
In my paintings I portray the natural beauty of my Maine environment, mindful of the unique atmospheric conditions that make a painting read visually Northern New England. I paint both plein air and in my studio, capturing the essence of the place to share with all who see my work, whether landscape paintings, seascape paintings, boats and marine, still life, or portrait.
As a studio artist I am trained in all media, but work mostly in oil, watercolors, charcoal, and graphite. I use professional grade materials and paint in traditional techniques to achieve surfaces rich in color, contrast, and texture for a realism that enables the viewer to visually participate in the painting.
