I am a landscape painter. I work primarily in watercolor but also work in oil, gouache and acrylic. My roots in rural northwest New Jersey have greatly influenced my art. Childhood trips to Canada, Maine and the Adirondacks as well as employment at Rutgers environmental camp strengthened my love of the outdoors and influenced my landscapes from an early age.
Education includes a BS from the University of Rhode Island ('72) and an MAE from RI School of Design ('89). "The Major Paintings of Winslow Homer" was the focus of an NEH Fellowship that was completed at Syracuse University in 1996.
I taught high school art in RI and led watercolor workshops in RI and Maine. I have juried into numerous art shows and won awards in sculpture, photography, pen & ink and watercolor. I have illustrated several booklets.
Since relocating permanently to Southwest Harbor in 2012, my work has hung at Bar Harbor Savings & Loan, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Jesup Library, NE Harbor Library, Quietside Gallery, Shaw Gallery, Smart Gallery, SW Harbor Public Library and Swallowfield.
