I have been drawing and painting in one medium or another for most of my life. I grew up in Massachusetts in a family that prized the creative arts. My mother encouraged me to paint and it is from her inspiration that I had the courage to enter my work into juried exhibitions where I received awards for landscapes and still lifes.
In 2010 I moved to Wiscasset, Maine, where I continue to paint, concentrating on quintessential New England architecture. My works have won awards at the Fitchburg Art Museum in Massachusetts, and I have exhibited at the River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta, Maine. My work is currently available for purchase at the Sylvan Gallery in Wiscasset and at the Lupine Gallery on Monhegan Island.
There is a fascination for me in the beauty and simplicity of early New England architecture, as well as in the relationship of each house to the land or water. I try to capture this harmony with a realistic technique
that reflects the care that the architect and builder took in siting the homes and other buildings to take maximum advantage of
the land and the light.
