Artist Statement

I am an oil painter living on the South Shore of Boston, MA. I enjoy painting subjects consisting of New England elements including seascapes, marshland, boats, blooms and cityscapes. I was awarded Copley Artist status and as a Juried Artist Member in Fine Arts at the Cape Cod Art Center. I have recently been juried into the South Shore Art Center Cohasset, MA as a Gallery Artist. I have also been an art educator, working in public and private institutions. My paintings stress a sense of time, place and perspective. I fracture my images with the application of paint using a palette knife. 

My major influences have been painting with Master Colorists Margaret McWethy and Sue Charles. My more recent influence has been with Kim Alemian, Realism to Abstraction explorative environment. 

I have been juried into recent national competitions and have completed commissions through out New England including the Langham Hotel Project, Boston, MA.
