The colors, patterns and textures of the natural world are the source and subject of my art. My primary focus is on landscapes, driven by my lifelong love of the outdoors. I spend a lot of time observing nature and the constantly changing light, color and atmosphere. While I have my favorite contemplative spots – the lakes and mountains of Maine, the beaches on the Cape and Islands – I find the urban landscape also offers random glimpses of beauty. My daily commute is along the Charles River in Boston, and I find that looking for unusual textures, colors or shapes of trees, interesting reflections on the water, or movement in the clouds provides a calming beginning and end to my work day.
