Artist Statement

My watercolor, oil, or acrylic paintings capture a moment in nature:  the late-afternoon light on an old barn, the comfort of a flower garden, the quiet beauty of a still life, animals in motion.  Whether soft or bold in hues, impressionistic or expressionistic in form, my aim is to  capture fleeting moments. My landscapes begin en plein air; often I return to the same farm or field or seaside until the scene is finished. 


I earned a B.F.A. in Painting from the University of Massachusetts, studying under Walter Kamys, and have exhibited throughout Western Massachusetts. I live in the Pioneer Valley, and serve on the board of the Quabbin Art Association.
