“I love the light upon the earth, especially at the most intimate time of day...twilight...when day melds into the arms of night. This is when the dance of light, gently sprawling across the land, is the most evocative. It captures every emotion in my soul. ”

This is why I am passionate about painting in the 19th century tonalist style. It captures the illuminosity of the play of atmospheric light and mysterious darks that I am drawn to. I focus on this as I continually learn the language of J. Francis Murphy, Alexander Wyant, Leon Germain Pelouse, George Inness...and contemporary master painter Dennis Sheehan.
Every painting is a lesson learned in the most spiritual of ways, and I know I don't do it alone. I've always believed if I could move just one person with my paintings, then I have learned a lesson on my journey. When I'm not painting, I am always observing the beauty of the natural world around me.
A native of western Pennsylvania, I have lived most of my adult life in coastal New England and now live in Byfield, Massachusetts.
