I’ve painted with acrylics since the early 70’s, adapting my methods and techniques to a practical system which accomplishes my goals. I'm primarily a studio painter, working from my own photographs and notes. I like to take time with my work, approaching the creative process unrushed and thoughtfully. While I limit myself to a split primary palette (two reds, two blues, two yellows, plus white), I enjoy taking advantage of the boundless creative properties of the medium. Typically, in my solo exhibits, I display an eclectic body of work from serene to robust, best reflecting my personality and taste.
What a joy to live under a New England sky! I get the atmosphere and convincing light I’m compelled to display in my work as I embrace the reality of beauty and truth. A favorite quote from St. Paul serves as a mindset for my creative expression.
“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
