Welcome to my website! I hope you enjoy looking through my collection of paintings and pastels.

Be sure to view my announcements page for the current schedule of shows, classes and events.

My inspiration comes from my surroundings; the changing seasons in Upstate New York and its woodlands and waterways, the lively street festivals and the lovely old architecture that makes this area unique.

I love working with color. I am not concerned with capturing the true color of an object for that will change with light, darkness or atmosphere, but with using color to convey depth and form and emotion.

"Landmark: the Gridley Building"

It is the emotional engagement of artist and viewer that I strive for.

Inspiration may come from the city streets or the quiet stillness of a North Country lake with the shimmer of light and color dancing upon it.

Other times inspiration comes from the merge of heart and mind in an image only the artist can create and the viewer can interpret. Color is the conduit connecting artist to emotion, and emotion to viewer.
