From an early age of four I have always been captivated by paint on surfaces. Creating work that has a strong pictorial sense and possessing the texture and nuance of paint is simply alchemy to me. It’s what I do.
I maintain a certain personal aesthetic hierarchy. There are reoccurring images in my work that relate to my ability, or sometimes inability, to absorb the world around me. Snatches of melody, a snippet of an image pulls up a wealth of imagery from my collective subconscious. I paint, or construct to see if I can create in plastic form what I see in my mind’s eye. In short, I paint what I want to see.
I live in midcoast Maine in a renovated church with my family. The space provides a sprawling opportunity to show my work.
I received a BFA from Alfred University in painting and worked at the graduate level for two years in lithography at Massachusetts College of Art.
