Welcome, I’m glad you could visit my web site. I am a self-taught oil painter who grew up in Massachusetts. I have lived in the New England area all my life. This area has always been a great source of inspiration and motivation for me in my work. I enjoy long rides through the back roads of New England; taking in the simplicity and tranquility of the land. The stone walls, open fields, farmhouses, hay rolls, horse rail fences and coastlines quiet my soul and bring me serenity. In this fast-paced world we all need some way to relax and get centered again.
I have been told that this love of New England is translated in my latest paintings. The row boats in “Colorful Moorings” from Rockport, Massachusetts won me the 1st Place Award at Topsfield Fair in 2010. The “Newbury Marsh” painting from Newbury, Massachusetts (near Newburyport) won the “Lucy Winant Award” in 2011.
I hope that you enjoy my paintings as much as I have enjoyed painting them. People who have purchased my work say they love to sit back, relax and get lost in the painting. This is probably the greatest compliment I could receive. I hope they bring you the same joy, comfort and peace.
