Welcome to my website.
I am a professional artist with 30 years of experience. I have been painting images of the Seacoast area of N.H. as well as Southern Maine over the past 15 years.
My repertoire of work also includes abstract work as well as still life.
My studio is located at the Button Factory in Portsmouth NH,( studio 317) where I create my own work as well as provide workshops in oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor and mixed media. I believe in teaching from observation to develop strong skills in the foundations of drawing, value, and creating a sense of light and space.

Automatic Expressive Abstract Painting Exercise ( Paint Night or Afternoon Class)
This is a guided lesson where we use shape, color pattern and line to create paintings that are drawn from nature but do not illustrate it in a literal sense.
Working quickly and in a large format what unveils itself are deeper meanings that come together like a creative dance of forms and colors. The piece that we are working on is turned several times during the
process so that there is no clear orientation. We finish the class with a group discussion. Each individual painting is turned for the group to respond to until the true orientation for the finished piece emerges.
This is a great way to understand how abstraction or the non- objective role of art plays an important place in our culture and psyche.
All Materials are provided. We will be working on large sheets of watercolor paper using acrylic paint and variety of brushes and mixed media.
This works great with a group of friends or co-workers. Please forward this to others that you think might be interested.
Cost per class $50.00 This is a 2 hour class. I can take 5 individuals for this class.
