There isn’t one particular moment I can remember that sparked my interest in art, but rather several small happenings over time.  As the years have gone by there has been a persistent desire to continue with my art.

 

In the beginning, I did pen and ink drawings recording old buildings before they disappeared.  I moved on to watercolors and then oils Maine landscapes and seascapes, farms, mountains, local landmarks, places with a past, landscapes that are diminishing over time.

 

In 2014 I was chosen as Baxter State Park visiting artist, I’ve had solo shows at the Emery Center for the Arts at UMF, Sugarwood   Gallery,   Carrabassett library,  Captain Morrill’s Art center,  and participated in juried shows and paint outs including USM /LA , Taste of Tidewater,  Castine  Paint Out, Waterville Art Society, MECA, Harlow Gallery, Sotheby’s and many more . I’m a member of Upcountry Artists and the High Peaks Artisan Guild.

 

There is nothing more satisfying than a day absorbed in plein air painting, battling the elements and my own resources.   What I love most is when another person looks at my painting and becomes excited. 

 

I’m a Maine artist living the High Peaks area of western Maine in an old farmhouse at the end of a  dirt road. 

 

 

Have a favorite spot or getaway? Let me do a painting for you.
