Koi I
12 x 9 Monotype, 2019


Having spent my life in the Hudson River Valley and Connecticut, I focus on painting landscapes of local scenes of New England and the East Coast in oil and pastel. In addition, I have recently become interested in exploring monotypes and linoleum block printing.

I have had the privilege of studying with such accomplished painters as Richard McKinley, Clayton Beck, Douglas Fryer, CW Mundy, and Dennis Sheehan, among others. Their enthusiasm for the creative process and generosity of wisdom has been invaluable.
