Artists' Statement:
I paint in oil,in the summer and fall I work plein air ;from direct observation. These paintings are drenched in light, color and energy. Composition is strong in all my work, as well as , sense of place. I do many portraits and watercolor as well. In the winter, I am a studio painter of narrative figurative paintings . These are worked from memory , drawings and photography.based on situations Ive watched or been part of that I find provocative. Yankee Magazine, featured me last summer in their article" 25 people in New England you should meet",Maine Home and Design featured me in November in an article on 3 Narrative Painters.My paintings are in over 600 collections and are in many books,or on covers . I live in Maine ,in the summer.
