I have drawn and painted since childhood. It is simply what I like to do best. I never set out to become "an artist", but it has become my way of making a living. I paint on a daily basis in my studio, or when it’s warm enough, on location. Painting on the spot is the most fun because it’s all right there - the smells, the noise, the shifting light, the bugs, the grass tickling my ankles, and you’ve got to capture it before it changes or disappears.

When creating my colorful paintings of the Vermont landscape, I use my memories and photos of places I have seen along with a healthy dose of imagination. My intention is always to capture how I feel about what I see – the actual arrangement of buildings, trees, hills and such is not as important. I especially like to play with the colors of the sky, mountains, and water on Lake Champlain.

All my artwork has always been inspired by the land, from apple orchards, vegetables gardens, New Mexico deserts, dairy farms, and even the New York City waterfront. The land in turn is changed and inspired by time and the seasons. The light is different through the day and month to month.

I have been drawing since I was 3 years old, painting at age 10. I always knew I wanted to be an artist, even at an early age. I have always been drawn to patterns, shapes, textures and their rhythmic movements in a painting, as if they have a life of their own. I am drawn to things that impart history; a cut glass bowl belonging to my grandmother, a well loved tea cup with a small chip on the rim, a fine piece of lace, various collections of knick-knacks – all mementos from a forgotten period. Everything I paint has a special, personal meaning for me. The objects within the piece are carefully chosen and arranged. I also strive to capture a slice of time, a passing of a
day – especially of children, to preserve that special moment that will be lost all too soon. I have always held the belief that if you paint often, paint what you are passionate about, paint what you love, it will shine throughout your work every time.

I wanted to paint the Vermont that everyone was nostalgic for. I created these Faux Vintage Travel posters using the airbrush and watercolor style from the Art Deco era.

I work with oil in the classical style, from life, in north light. While the objects I choose to paint are often common, they manifest an uncommon beauty when the cool north light caresses them, and the warmth of the shadows engulf them. With the paint I strive for the illusion of the 3rd dimension, to paint the air behind the object and create a tranquil experience to share.

I like to explore different sides of myself, and I like to have fun. A lot of my earlier paintings are edgier than my more recent work… So some of my more recent paintings are, for me, a nice diversion from that and are exploring a lighter side of my sense of humor…
