I began drawing and painting as a child and my parents soon enrolled me in the Currier Museum School in Manchester, NH. I took art classes throughout high school and entered college looking forward to a degree in art education.
After graduating, I taught in the Manchester area schools both public and private, but in 1991 opened Modes of Expression Fine Art and Instructional Studio, which I ran successfully for 13 years. Now that I have retired from teaching, I devote most of my time to painting my contemporary landscapes.

My style has been influenced by the Impressionists of the later 1800-1900's, artists Edward Hopper, Childe Hassam, George Bellows, Fairfield Porter, and more recently by Wolf Kahn. Finding myself drawn just as strongly to abstract works by more contemporary masters, I have developed works that reflect some of both. The play of sunlight on surfaces and the vivid colors of nature capture my attention and I strive to place these elements in each of my paintings. Although New England landscapes have been my favorite subject, I sometimes travel about and enjoy painting almost anywhere.
My seasonal schedule of shows can be found on the Events page. Please visit the Contemporary Landscape Paintings collection and explore the links on that page to see available paintings and some of my previously sold works.
I also display works at this link http://fineartamerica.com and on Pinterest. I often post new works on Facebook and write blogs about my works whenever the mood takes me.
