My realist paintings applaud the beauty of the ocean and are inspired by nostalgia of childhood summers at Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. A viewer will frequently comment on the serene sense of calm in my paintings which is often what inspires me in nature. I use distinctive colors to interpret the ever-changing values of sea and sky. Although I explore solitude and stillness a great deal, I also experiment painting the collaborative excitement and momentum of wind-filled sails.
