I am a self-taught artist, originally working in pencil and charcoal before discovering watercolors. In my paintings I strive to capture images of the rural environment around me, as well as people engaged in everyday activities. I mainly work from my own photographs, which I take of my local surroundings and when I am traveling. I grew up on Cape Cod and have spent most of my adult life in southwestern New Hampshire. These places greatly influence my painting. The natural beauty of the world around me and visions of daily life give me the inspiration to paint.

I Have Worked With
I have been a member of the Monadnock Area Artists Association since 2003. Through this association I have participated in solo exhibits in Keene and area businesses, group exhibits at the Colony Mill Marketplace in Keene, and Keene's annual Art in the Park over Labor Day weekend. I volunteered for several years as outreach coordinator to organize exhibits at City Hall and People's United Bank in Keene.
Marlow Art ColonyMay 2006
I joined the Marlow Art Colony in 2003. The colony was formed in 2001 to foster creativity and encourage active expression of individual talent. Most of the members have been to the Cornish Art Colony started by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1885 and have used that as a basis for what we are doing. We just gather together sharing information, critiques, etc. Each September we exhibit our art at the outdoor Art in the Woods in Marlow, New Hampshire.
