My current body of work reflects my desire both to connect more deeply with the natural world and to express my abiding affection and gratitude for it. It focuses primarily on the landscape of the northeastern United States: including the waterfront parks and streets of East Boston; the wildflowers and grasses of the Berkshires; the dunes and trees of Cape Cod; and the rocky coast of Maine.
My prints and paintings are done quickly, generally without preparatory drawing, and are created in as spontaneous a manner as possible. Largely self-taught, I am inspired not only by the plants, skyscapes and land forms of the northeast, but also by my artistic heroes: in particular, Van Gogh, Matisse and Hockney.
