I find immense and intense pleasure in the beauty of nature. I absolutely love color! I also believe in the restorative power of nature, and strive to share this feeling with others through my use of a vibrant palette in find in the natural world.

In my focus on the effects of color and light in my paintings, I use the same intense and vibrant palette as well as dynamic complimentary color relationships that the Impressionists used. However, rather than using the loose and sketchy brushwork of the Impressionists, my brushwork is more closely aligned with the Photorealist painters. I work directly from life and or from my own reference photos. One of my recent series is tropical oil paintings. It includes orchids, mangoes, heliconias, palms, ginger plants, and bromeliads. This body of work is inspired by recent trips to the tropics, as well the fact that I lived in Miami for almost 10 years.

To achieve vibrant and luminous color, I paint numerous layers beginning with very thin washes, building up to a thick and rich finish.

A recent series includes the flowers from my garden in my Gloucester home. I have challenged myself to find the color in the shadows and play of light on white blooms, such as the gardenia and magnolia. I challenged myself even further in a recent exploration in painting in grey scale.

I hope my paintings bring pleasure to the viewer, as I pay homage to the glorious beauty of nature.
