I paint as a ritual for expression, exploration and communication. I am seduced by the visual world and all that resonates beneath its surface.
The conception of a work happens when I am physically stopped by something that fascinates me. I study it with new eyes, and recast it in paint with a new awareness. I paint from life, and also intuitively in the abstract especially after a walk in Nature.
A career highlight for me was to be included in the 2011 Portland Museum of Art Biennial with a Review by Pulitzer Art Critic, Sebastian Smee. In 2015, my paintings were selected for the Poets and Artists Magazine’s 50 Memorable Painters, and in 2016, my work was featured in Artscope’s “10 Artists for the 10th Anniversary” Edition. Afer a year long project, I continue to paint the changing light on the Iconic Prudential Building complex as seen from my studio perch on the 4th floor of 450 Harrison Ave. This ongoing “Pru Skyline, Boston” Series of 26+ (7” x 5”) paintings can be seen in my studio/gallery and also at the Clark Gallery in Lincoln, MA.
I received a BA degree from the University of Maine in Orono with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Anthropology, and continued studies at Rhode Island School of Design and the Fuller Museum of Art.
Series works are included in the collections of Nokia, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, MIT, and in private collections internationally. I have received awards of recognition from curators from MOMA and The Guggenheim, NY, The Rose Art Museum @ Brandeis, and the Director Emeritus of the Museum of Fine Arts/Boston.
My South End studio is open for “First Fridays”, for SOWA Special Events, and by appointment.
