Artist’s Statement

Painting has become my way of moving through this world, responding to and expressing what I see and feel. It is my interpretation, using color, stroke, and line, to evoke the mood I am receiving. Whether it is a landscape, a person, or a still life, I want to recreate what I am receiving.

Through some fortunate circumstances, I am now living on Monhegan Island, Maine. In the summer I run a studio gallery, and off season I spend painting, traveling, doing portraits, and other art related endeavors. Monhegan offers endless inspiration, no matter what the season, and I feel very fortunate to call this home.
