I am an acrylic painter from southern Maine. I started my artist career as a picture framer. After years of working to enhance others art, I decided to create my own. I traveled west to explore the endless sky, great plains and majestic mountains. I came back to Maine to be at home with the calm of the ocean and lakes.

I love to create work that reflects the subtle and diverse beauty that is the Maine landscape mixed with the grander of the big western sky. I use dry brush technique, layering colors like feelings to give depth and character. I enjoy materials such as birch wood panels, marrying the painting of nature with the natural movement of the wood grain. I wish my work to evoke an appreciation for the tranquility and magnificence of Mother Nature that inspires me.
