The Artist

I’m interested in pathways, in reflections, in edges.  In the spaces between - earth and water, sky and horizon, vapors and the distant ozone.  In the mystery of what happens just outside the frame of the picture. 


I’m interested in light - across fields, reflected in water, filtered through the mist,

constantly changing, and especially the light at the end of the day, as the sun  disappears into the darkness.  I work in oils, in pastel and in charcoal.


I studied art at SUNY Buffalo and the Art Students League, as well as in Siena Italy.  I have lived and worked in the Hudson Valley/Berkshire Hills region for the past 35 years, and have also drawn inspiration from the New England coastline, from Florida’s Gulf coast and the Georgia Sea Islands, from the Southwest American desert lands, and from travels in Italy, France and England.
