I paint what strikes my eye and heart: the stories that old structures tell, relationships between and among generations, the lights and colors of the land and sea scapes, the relationships between generations and the land. Each of these themes is informed by a strong sense of place in New England.
My style is representational because I prefer to focus on the story shown by the scene itself. The values of light, color, texture, and movement combine to tell the story produced by that single moment in time. I paint with the full spectrum to unite the features within their context, and I work to show the joy of the moment. I love to paint both landscapes and portraits.
