I am fortunate to live in a part of the country that is so picturesque, and I am constantly aware of the natural beauty of Maine. The coast and the tidal marshes nearby inspire my landscapes. I hope to evoke the feeling of being in the landscape by communicating the quality of light, color, and vastness of space. I most often work from imagination, memory and intuition to convey atmospheric perspective and timelessness in nature. I am an artist because I want to know what it is to be alive. I want my paintings to reflect a moment in time as an experience of what it is to be human tethered to this mortal coil.
I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California College of The Arts and a Master of Fine Art degree from Savannah College of Art and Design and started my professional career teaching painting (Georgetown University, Colby College).
