I paint in a sunny studio in coastal Biddeford, Maine during the winter months. When the weather permits, I pack my easel and head out in the landscape all over New England to work in the changing weather. I enjoy the immediacy of the outdoor painting experience. I really see the light and color when I am out in the world working and that translates to art with more truth. When I am in the studio I tend to work on larger pieces and get interested in surface effects and mark making. I work with oil paints primarily now but I have used watercolor, gouache, pastel, graphite and ink as well. Textiles, sculpture, photography, old master paintings are inspiration as well as other contemporary artists. I am influenced by music and listen to all kinds.
