I've always been intrigued by the New England landscape. Since childhood, the coastal areas of Cape Cod and Maine and the pastoral and mountainous areas of New Hamphire have left their imprint. They have become part of my painterly vocabulary so to speak. My vocabulary is a combination of observation, invention and personal experience but used in a selective way to create an image. Therefore much of the work functions as poetry and narrative. They imply things. I use the figure in a similar way whether it be in a landscape or interior setting. Not only do the figures establish a sense of scale in relation to their surroundings but they also become part of the narrative. My classical background is evident by the use of light and dark in creating strong and subtle form; a light which illuminates and unifies; whether it be the rocks from a stretch of beach, a cloud filled sky or an isolated figure.

“I need to mention them because they were all so influential. They stressed the disciplines of making art; the attention to form and space; but always to achieve a personal vision.”
