"From the time I could hold a pencil in my hand, I was drawing; it comes as naturally to me as breathing. During my time at the Massachusetts College of Art my focus switched briefly to photography, for which I am now thankful. As a painter, I use my photography skills as a tool. In my travels, I compose with my camera, enabling me to paint in my comfortable studio which overlooks a pond in Pembroke, MA.
I have been painting in watercolor for 30 years. My passion is for man-made landscapes or “manscapes” as I call them. The thrill for me is finding an old store, diner, or gas station from another era and capturing it in unique light. Whether it’s a fishing camp on my own pond, or a famine cottage in Ireland, it is the subject that motivates me."
