About the Artist

At the core of my work is an intense interest in the energy and movement of the landscape. My paintings evolve from intimate experiences, filtered by the passage of time, memory and imagination. The process begins with rough pencil sketches done on location, though some pieces begin purely from the memory of an experience. Sketches are the foundation in formulating an idea for a painting to be executed in the studio setting. Many weeks, months or years may pass until I return to the memory of a particular experience as sparked by the sketches. Color decisions are made during the painting process. Although I envision a final image in my minds eye before the painting begins, this image may alter during the creative process. Since 2007, I have been working thematically on images revolving around transitional light. My working studio on Mount Desert has been open to the public during the summer season since June 2002.
