The Artist Says:

It's Summer in New England!  My van is loaded with my plein air gear so that I can paint outdoors at a moment's notice.  I've discovered that I like my art to be collaborative, not just a solo, lone-ranger kind of thing.  This means engaging my collectors in the thinking process that occurs before, during, and after I create a painting.  Early on my work was described as making people happy. But sometimes it’s thrilling to engage with another person and co-create a vision that they have been unable to unlock until I help them do that.  Then, with my own image firmly in mind,  I can proceed in a much more motivated way.  Much of the art I see out and about is focused on an artist’s personal vision,  I think mine is more inclusive. 

Collectors Say:

This quote is from a portrait client e-mail: " I got the pictures and sketches and here are my initial thoughts.... I LOVED looking at them, first of all. I really connected with your first sketch, with our son wrestling with the net and our daughter asking if he needs help. Their expressions and gestures were just so perfectly like them it really spoke to me...
Also, thank you for your suggestions about saving the notes and everything that you give me in regard to the work. This is our very first experience with fine art so your suggestions are appreciated."
