I paint the beauty of the world around me: the South Shore of Massachusetts and the Thousand Islands of New York, where I have lived and painted for most of my life. I believe that all the information you need to paint a masterpiece is right in your backyard! Be mindful, be observant, and be honest: The painting will reveal itself.
I am a colorist. I see the big shapes and color in a composition; the details follow from that. I work primarily on location, returning to the studio in the winter months where I work on larger canvasses.
I have spent a life of land and water stewardship through farming, serving on the Cohasset, MA Board of Health and Conservation Commission, and many years ago, on the beginnings of Save the River. This beauty is worth managing wisely because it can be destroyed so quickly.
The joyful, prayerful, playful extension of this stewardship is to share that beauty with you through my paintings.
Thanks for visiting!
