We live near the water both here in Maine and in Boston. The focus of my work has always been the landscape/seascape both in its large shapes and its microscopic elements. I am interested in portraying the constant movement brought on by the changes of light and wind, and the many life and death cycles ever present on the earth. These intertwining organic transformations, that are felt and often concealed, have been expressed in my work for many years.
In addition, we have traveled to and lived in many wonderful places for short periods of time. This nomadic existence has given me an opportunity to view the world with fresh eyes, and to do work which often tells an experiential story.
I am attracted by the expressive qualities of many different materials, which I believe arises from my many years as a teacher of art. Thus, I have produced bodies of work in photography, drawing, painting, collage, and encaustic, with each material being specifically connected to the subject being expressed.
