Artist Statement
What do I create and why do I create it?
I strive to imbue my work with the feeling of beauty, joy and meaning I experience. I find plentiful subjects in the landscape, gardens, and in old objects that reflect the patina of time and use. As a plein air artist, the state of Maine offers a bounty of beautiful subjects, each of which provides me with a challenging learning experience. I also love to paint people and animals, and strive to capture each subject's warm personality and unique style.

A Brief History
After a lifetime of other pursuits that involved raising three children and running a hunting lodge, I am now a full time painter working in the plein air style in oil and pastel. I am a member of the Plein Air Artists of Maine and the Bangor Art Society.

 

My beginnings are in Machias where I was born, on Maine's rugged Atlantic coast, surrounded by farms, and forests. These are themes that are reflected in my work. My parents and teachers encouraged me to continue what they saw as an early interest in art. I have always felt a passion for painting and drawing. 

In the early seventies I worked with a commercial artist and furthered my art education by attending workshops and the Minneapolis Art School. When my children were grown my art career gained a renewed sense of focus. I became the owner -operator of a hunting lodge in Waldo, Maine. The constant interaction with the outdoors and the sportmen rekindled my appreciation for the natural beauty that surrounds me in Maine. This sense of beauty and bounty is reflected in my work. Since retiring from the hunting lodge business in 2004, I have been painting full time, keeping my work fresh by attending workshops offered by various artists.
