"By the sea and throughout my surroundings where I live in Downeast Maine,
there are places I like to go to over and over again. I aim to know my subjects very well before I begin to paint.
A lifetime of observation is the foundation of all the work I do.
I spent about 25 years in central Maine, exploring throughout the state in my off hours,
and have enjoyed a well rounded life earning my living for the most part through the profession of graphic design in New York
City and England before I moved to central Maine in 1978.
In 2007 I moved to a sea coast farm to widen my experience and live in a small town where the people are for the most part
dependent on natural resources for their incomes. While living in Lubec, I also became
a professional felter in addition to doing all my other creative work.
I've worked all my life and supported myself as an artist.
Through my love of the outdoors and nature, i qualified as a Registered Maine Guide. With my friend Bob,we explore the sea, the rivers, mountains, and all the other interesting aspects of life in Maine, I'll never run out of subjects I want to paint or express in some way
how I feel about life.
I have exhibited work throughout my life beginning with "Hope", a painting juried into my first national competition
while I was still a student at DePauw University, which took First Prize at the Intercollegiate Salon of Art sponsored by Indiana University.
I developed a love for sumi-e painting and my first entry into a juried international competition at the Japanese Cultre Institute in Toronto in 2010 won me the Founder's Award for "Salmon Pool". Normally, my work is not confined to just one medium; I will use whatever materials suit the inspiration best as I have mastered almost all media and enjoy experimenting all the time."
