My first "intentional" painting was of a dairy cow and grain silo, rendered in poster paint after a second-grade field trip.
From then on I was hooked. Over the years I’ve worked in oils and acrylics, fiber art, and assemblage.
In the past few years I’ve been in more traditional mode, painting the iconic waterways,islands, and houses of the Essex River Basin. I look for fresh ways of approaching these familiar scenes. Some of my paintings of Eben Creek, for example, are from the point of view of a swimmer down in the water.
I've exhibited my work at Walker Creek Furniture, of course; at Art in the Barn, and at the Preston-Cutler gallery at Christ Church of Hamilton and Wenham, MA. My work is currently on display at Muzio Designs, Close Quarters, and Canterbury Hill Studio and Gallery.
