Artist Statement:  My passion is to capture the beauty of the four seasons in Maine, New England and frankly everywhere. For me, it doesn’t get any better than being outdoors and really connecting with the beauty around me: the lakes, hiking and ski trails, mountains, rivers, fields, wildflowers, gardens and charming old buildings. The experience of being present and involved with the stillness of nature while painting on location informs and inspires me. Vivid colors, textures, shapes and space as well as reflections, lighting, and shadows unique to the time of day and to each season speak to me. A persistent desire to journey with one medium or another has given rise to a variety of intimate studies and series.”
