Spring at The Herring Run
32×24 monotype with block printing, 2015
I try to capture something of the beauty and fragility of our beaches, saltmarshes, and wildlife of the Cape in my work.
I walk my dogs on the saltmarsh in West Brewster several times a week, in all kinds of weather, and am inspired by the change of seasons, the tides, the subtlety of color.
I look forward to raising awareness through my art, and inspiring our community to protect, preserve and enjoy the wild and open spaces of Cape Cod.
