My subjects have included marine, landscape, and intimate domestic still lifes. They share my interest in the effects of light at a particular moment. The threads of the canvas, the sea, Vermont, Maine, my family, and friends have woven themselves inextricably into my psyche and my work. I have painted professionally for the past fifty years. I am included in many private and corporate collections, including Steven and Dayna Bochco, John and Gwen McCaw, Senator Claiborne and Nuala Pell, Laurence and Mary Rockefeller, Charles and Anne Sincerbeaux, Beth Webster, Bank of America, and many others.
An invisible presence surrounds me when I am alone in a field observing the landscape. I can feel that presence or spirit voice watching the wind swaying through the marsh grass on a brisk fall day. The salt marsh sparrows swooping and diving in rhythm with the wind. It’s an actual dance and a breathtaking experience to watch. Those magical moments when all the hustle and bustle in life disappears and what’s left is truly remarkable. In those quiet moments, I feel the creator orchestrating all the beauty surrounding me. As a co-creator of that beauty, I try to capture those moments in time and space. It’s my first impression, my feelings from a view I aim to capture on canvas and make it timeless.
