The Short Story

I am a life-long painter, baby boomer, do-it-yourselfer.

Painting has been a continuous thread running through my life beginning in suburban New Jersey as part of the big baby boom. The alternative beat of the sixties appealed to me, and I went along for the ride with my art supplies to chronicle the adventures. I managed a year of art school in the seventies (Montserrat School of Visual Art) but yielded to the siren call of driving and painting across Europe in a VW bus. The bold color washes of the sixties mellowed and blended with the background, along with the sometimes humorous, sometimes dark, pen and inks left along the road.

The seventies found me settled into rural life in New Hampshire with other "back to the landers". The eighties and nineties were years of home schooling children, building a house and stacking firewood. With the turn of the century, the tree farm was exchanged for town life in Damariscotta, Maine. 

Acrylic paint has been my medium for about fifty years, but my experiences are the palette I draw from.

 These days, I venture out with my supplies from my home and studio into the dramatic setting of the Atlantic seaboard and continue to follow the unexplored dreams of my life.
