About the Artist

My work has been selected for display in both juried and/or member shows of HVAL, SCAL, and Blandford Fair, among others. In addition, my painting of a local historic structure has been selected for the Berkshire Carousel project, which is a reconstructed antique carousel. . My paintings are also on display in several local businesses and public buildings.

Artist's Statement

Since I never attended a formal art school, I presume I am considered to be" self-taught". This, however, is misleading since I have taken many workshops and studied under several watercolor teachers to achieve my present skill level. My newest interest is painting "en plein aire.” My aim is to produce more original work. I love to paint landscapes and flowers.
