As an artist, I am fascinated by the incredible variety of canine characteristics. Their differences in head shapes, body sizes, eyes, noses, jowls, ears, paws (not to mention facial expressions, temperament, and propensity for drooling) continually tickle and intrigue me.
I work mostly on location and then move the works into my studio where I will work until completion. The scenes in coastal Maine have catapulted my vision to an abstraction of everyday imagery into whimsical scenes played out on the beach, in the dunes on the rocks, to sailing on Casco Bay, and many more, salt-water sanctuaries.
My style tends to be figurative with impressionistic touches, usually showing close up compositions with just enough detail to reveal the subject. I have concentrated on Maine–themed images and fresh fruits and vegetables because I like the idea of the life they represent.
