A New England Painter
After a long and fulfilling professional life in health care, I am now focusing on my lifelong passion for art. I paint in the style of traditional realism and studied with Johnnie Liliedahl and Elizabeth Robbins. Preferring oils, I strive to use light and color to capture the serene in a still life and the dynamic energy in landscapes.
The natural beauty of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and the coast of Maine have a profound effect on me. Throughout my many travels all over the world, I have always enjoyed visiting museums large and small and have been influenced by the many well-known and not so well-known artists I’ve has met along the way. I so enjoyed attending French Art School in the Limousin and painting plein air at the same locations as Monet in the Creuse Valley, being the only American amongst a group of amazing Australian painters. Such fun! Travel and painting are an important part of my life.
I am drawn to still life.
In a world that is anything but still, a still life painting allows us to pause, reflect, and deepen our understanding of the world around us and perhaps even within us.
My works can be found in private collections in New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Washington, and Massachusetts as well as at the New Hampshire Art Association’s Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in Portsmouth and the Boothbay Harbor Art foundation in Boothbay Maine.
