I grew up on a peninsula of land in Maine, jetting out into Casco Bay - Atlantic Ocean. A trip to town was more then ten miles, one way, along a hilly, winding, narrow, ledge-crowned road.

I like bold shapes and bright colors, natural subjects, botanicals, lobsters, mortal moments, silly sayings and humor. Watercolor and chalk painting are my primary pleasures but I have been known to work in, acrylic, oil, pastel, photography, collage, digital graphics, ceramics, wood block printing, mixed media and jewelry. When I'm not creating, I can be found chasing trains and building models with my young son.

I offer custom chalk and watercolor art paintings. If you have a subject like your favorite pet, your home, a portrait, contact me for a custom art work.
