The landscape of Maine serves as inspiration for much of my painting. The constant shifts of light - from season to season and day to day - reveal hidden colors and moods that are best mirrored in the ephemeral medium of watercolor.
I studied studio art and art history in Ohio, New York (MOMA summer programs), Michigan (University of Michigan and Michigan State University) and Maine under such teachers as John DeMartelly and Nancy Plum. Professionally, I served as Education Curator of the Kresge Art Museum (now the Eli and Edyth Broad Museum) at M.S.U. and as an adjunct professor of Art History.
In Maine both Lynn and John Seitzer and Brady Nickerson have been extremely helpful in offering studio space and thoughtful criticism. Most importantly in recent years Sonja von Reis Cornell has been a teacher and mentor for my current interest in watercolor and the incorporation of encaustic and gold leaf in my work.
In Maine I currently have work in the River Arts Gallery, Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor Art Foundation.
