In recent years I have been painting exclusively in oils, although I used acrylics
for over 20 years and have also used casein, pastels, and the airbrush. I was
born and raised and have spent all my life in New England and enjoy painting
landscapes and seascapes and cityscapes of the New England area. My family
and I have vacationed in every New England state; I had a summer cottage at a
Rhode Island beach; I graduated from college in Vermont. I have always felt that
you did not have to leave this area to find natural beauty.
I hope you enjoy the paintings in my web site as much as I enjoyed painting them.
