Thank you for visiting my web site. I am a New England painter. Following a long line of artists trying to capture the beauty found along the rugged coast, mountains, and coastal towns of the region. My painting challenge is trying to capture, on location, the way light transforms the spectacular and the ordinary into something stunning. I will also work in my studio/ gallery on paintings. Using my plein air paintings, sketches, and photos for reference. Besides Plein Air Painting I have a strong love for abstract images. the use of color, texture, and negative space to create images and moods that are not representational.

I am primarily a self taught painter. But have received instruction in workshops and night classes from Plein Air painters, David Lussier, Randall Sexton, John MacGowan, Jill Carver, and Colley Whisson.

I have a back ground in Jewelry Industry and BFA in ceramics in 1976 from Coe College

I am represented in the following Galleries:
Art on Spring 140 Spring St, Newport, RI ( Gallery Owner)
Arnold Art, Newport, RI
Spring Bull Gallery, Newport, RI

National Plein Air Juried shows that I have participated in:

Wet Paint, Newport Art Museum
Blackstone Valley, MA Plein Air
Wayne, PA Plein Air Festival
Polasek Museum, Winter Park, FL Plein Air Paintout [...]
