About the Artist

I paint landscapes and still lifes in a painterly realist style, primarily in oil on prepared watercolor paper or linen canvas, or in gouache on paper. The oil on paper work is permanently mounted on cradled hardboard for presentation. Most of my work is begun on location, and the visual relationships found there are then amplified or transformed as I further develop the work in my studio. I find that landscape presents me with endless opportunities to explore the tensions between color, mark, the interrelationship of forms and lines, and painterly surface, while also keeping an eye on the specificity of the place, the light, and the moment.

I hold a B.A. in Fine Arts and the Humanities from the University of Chicago. My work has been represented by galleries in Maine, Boston, and Chicago, and is included in public, corporate and private collections across the US and abroad. I've also taught adult drawing and painting through MECA's and USM's continuing education programs as well as privately at my Portland studio.
