Having grown up among the beauty of the Maine wilderness and in close proximity to the Maine coast I developed a love for the brilliance of landscape. As a child I spent a great deal of time outside, camping, fishing and taking trips to the coast of Maine with family. It’s this radiance of nature around me that inspires me to paint. Often I take a full day to simply drive and photograph the landscape, using those photos as inspiration in my paintings. It's amazing to me how quickly the colors and textures change from day to day.
I strive to look beyond just the landscape, bringing vivid layers of color and values in realistic and contemporary paintings. I paint in a variety of mediums, watercolor, oil, and acrylic, usually working on more than one painting at a time . I want to concentrate on the feeling of the area I'm viewing and how I see it that day. I want the paint to show the textures of the landscape and the sky, through the movement of the paint. . The intent of my work is to remind others of the beauty around us and to take a moment to look beyond
everyday life and appreciate it.
I use many different mediums, such as acrylics, watercolors and oils. I believe that artists continue to grow and experiment with various mediums.
I love to paint the sky! An evening when the sky is covered by clouds that look like blankets. A sun set while a storm is moving in, with the most amazing bright and stormy colors at the same time. Soft skies on a night void of wind and mornings with such heavy fog you can't see clearly 20 feet ahead. The mist of the fall evenings and the white steam that lifts off the water as a fall day begins to warm.
