My art evokes the natural beauty of coastal New England, the ocean, the beaches and the wild life are my constant inspiration.
I strive to pare down and find the essence of my subject matter by abstracting shapes and exaggerating color.
To me straddling the edge of realism and abstraction is the most exciting and challenging aspect of my art.
When beginning a paintings I start with some idea of what the work will look like but it changes quite a bit from what was first in my mind's eye. During this process I have to let myself go and trust my intuition, it is both fun and scary but when a painting emerges it is all worth it.
