Artist Bio:

BFA from the University Of Hartford. MFA from Anna Maria College. I have over 30 years of experience teaching studio art and art history at all grade levels. In my own work, my preferred media is oil paint, oil pastel, and a combination of watercolor with colored pencil. I strive to capture images that touch the viewer in a personal way. In my seascapes and landscapes I attempt to go beyond pure representation and paint not only the place, but communicate the feeling of being in that space. I try to capture the elusive space between representation and the emotions felt from the experience or memory of a place.
