My work is an exploration of my passion for color and light in the Maine landscape. I have returned repeatedly to a handful of special places in Maine that offer inspiration. Many of these places are along the coast, and I am especially drawn to the dynamic tension created where the land meets the sea.

The paintings are studio based, working from plein-air sketches that focus on capturing a moment of light, energy and color. The sketches inspire a direction for the paintings. I use pastels as a plein-air medium; they help capture the essence of the moment of inspiration. In some cases the pastels become paintings. Other times, they stand alone as completed work.
