Thank you for visiting my website. I am a fine art painter in Camden, Maine. While I work primarily in oil, I also paint in watercolor and pastel. Unless otherwise noted, the paintings you see on this website are for sale. I encourage you to contact me if you would like further details.
I have been painting and drawing for over 40 years. Although I primarily work in Oil, I have also worked in Watercolor, Egg Tempera, and Pastel. I graduated from Wellesley College in 1976 with a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art.
Most of my work is in Landscape and Portrait. I choose ordinary subjects and try to demonstrate their extraordinary emotion, beauty, and presence. I especially love the work of Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Robert Henri. I strive in my work to reach the strength of expression these artists achieved.
I believe one cannot break the rules until one has mastered the rules. With this in mind, I have participated in many workshops given by current artists whose work I admire. It is my hope my paintings reflect the excellent training I have had working with these artists. I am constantly striving to increase my proficiency and maintain a freshness in my artistic expression.
