I grew up in Boston and graduated from Boston University with a BFA in Painting in 1974. I attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1976 after several years living in France.
I am a landscape painter at heart; centering my work on interpreting and transforming the landscapes in which I find myself or travel through. I am concerned with the sensibility of place rather than the documentation of the particular site and I am drawn to explore the unpredictability of life in the natural world and the deep relationship between the artist and the earth. In my travels, some places that have impacted me enormously have been the Eastern Arctic and Tierra del Fuego in addition to my home in Maine, New England as well as other sites throughout Europe and the United States.
Following a move to Ft. Myers, FL in 1999, I have worked at the United Arts Council of Collier County in Naples and participated extensively in the local art community.
