Biography

After retiring from the world of finance in manufacturing, I was eager to study painting. Fifteen years ago I started taking Plein Air art classes in Old Lyme, Ct, the home of the American Impressionists. I have worked with and exhibited at the Old Lyme Art Association, Clinton Art Association, and Essex Art Association during the summers. In the winter I take classes and workshops in the Naples, Florida area.
Much of my study has been done at The vonLiebig Art Center here in Naples. I am currently studying under Marco Bronzini in his Art Studio here and plein air in Sausalito, California.
I enjoy still life, seascapes, landscape, and portrait. I would classify my style as expressionistic. Having lived on and around the water all of my adult life, I am drawn to it. Please see my artist statement under philosophy.

Artist's Statement


My experiences have made me poignantly aware of humanity's plight in our seemingly broken world. I am intrigued and encouraged by man's ability to rise above his/her difficult circumstances. In my art, I strive to focus on what is beautiful about our broken world. I choose subjects
that have the ability to lift our spirits and bring an intentional focus on God's love of His creation. To this end, I work with oil using striking colors yet simplicity in composition to evoke a sense of peace and well-being.
