My studies in the 1970s and 80s were focused on
printmaking and drawing. A decade later after a career in graphic
design, I returned to the fine arts, specifically oil painting.
The study of light and line that I found exciting in lithography,
etching and wood-engraving continue to fascinate me in painting.
I grew up in rural Virginia where the Tidewater
meets the Piedmont, and now I live and paint in the foothills
of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The changing atmosphere in Virginias
distinct seasons has always been my inspiration as an artist.
Most Septembers, I spend time painting on remote Monhegan Island
off the coast of Maine where generations of artists have retreated
to paint. Each location offers its unique light and color that
drive me to paint. Its a splendid way to get to know a place.
