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’m a Boston-based artist with close ties to Maine, having owned a camp on a lake and painted there for more than 20 years. I never tire of Maine's fast-moving weather or of watching the clouds and light dance across the sky, water, mountains, and woods. I spend a lot of time outdoors, observing and taking source photos. Back in the studio, I freely rearrange objects and intensify their colors and shapes to best capture the essential feeling of a particular moment.
