I am continually inspired by the New England landscape. This is where my family settled many generations ago, where I was raised, and where I live. Having spent most of my youth in playtime and in solitary reflection by our pond or at the beach, the theme of water is a through-line in my life and artwork.
With a passion for color, movement, and brushwork, I strive to bring about a spiritual and emotional connection between my viewers and the landscapes I portray.
I explore the relationship between sky, water, and land in my ongoing series of paintings. Shorelines of rivers, marshes, dunes, and oceans have been an exciting springboard for this expression.
