As a painter, I use oil paint almost exclusively. I loved it at age three when I got into my father’s paints and saw the hardwood floor and my body as perfect vehicles for expression. If I close my eyes, I still hear my mother’s scream. That introduction has stayed with me. Today I love pushing and pulling oil paint around my canvas. Expressive, abstract explorations of the landscape excite me, particularly that of New England and Maine’s coast.

Barn and Mill Gallery – A Spring Pop-Up on Maine Art Hill
My process begins with “wood hunting”: I seek the unusual and the imperfect. Often rejected by large-scale wood processors, these characteristics show how art can be produced within an organic, natural environment. I view myself as a custodian of this natural art. I focus on creating designs that bring this natural art into people’s homes.
