Artist Statement

As a child I spent countless hours at the beach digging deep holes in the sand desperate to reach China by nightfall. Groups of unsupervised kids played Tag and Capture the Flag in the street.  Polliwogs in mayonnaise jars were kept hostage at my bedside until they sprouted legs.  Under impossibly tall oak trees, mysterious moss and lichen-covered mounds blanketed the backyard and made nice tables to serve mud pie. These places from childhood inform my palette and the surface of my paintings.

 I am fortunate to live in a part of the country that is so picturesque, and I am constantly aware of the natural beauty of Maine when I step out my door every morning.  The Maine coast and the tidal marshes nearby inspire the landscapes in this gallery.  I hope to evoke the feeling of being present in the landscape by concentrating on communicating the quality of light and color, the feel of the breeze and vastness of space.  I often work from memory and intuition to convey atmospheric perspective and timelessness in nature.

I have no preconceived notions of the final product and often begin an image with one idea and by the end a new subject or theme emerges. A painting can be a record of a certain period that grows out of the process of searching and questioning, obscuring, and revealing. With subsequent layers exposed, then covered, the passage of time becomes evident in the work.  Ultimately, forms are manipulated and distorted at the expense of visual order.  An effort is made at finding the truth by developing the places in a painting that are authentic.
