Prints and originals of acrylic paintings and colored pencil art. Working with colored pencil or acrylic paints, I create highly-detailed images inspired by my scenic home state and its coastal landscapes. My botanical drawings are frequently of flowers in my perennial gardens. The landscapes are from travels around the state.
Years ago I had a woodcraft business and I have always wanted to get back to this more creative lifestyle. So after spending quite a few years in product development in the housewares industry I decided to move to rural Maine to pursue my passion for creating my own original artwork and the challenges of transferring my artwork on to functional products for the home.
I now work primarily in watercolor. I try to create fresh, clean images inspired largely by nature and wildlife. In addition to producing giclee reproductions of my paintings I have developed a line of functional products that use my original paintings. My paintings are transferred on to wood via a printing process which results in a brilliant color reproduction on a highly durable surface. My current products include Tabletop items such as Table Savers (trivets), Centerpieces, Place mats and Coasters. I am currently working on both topical and seasonal collections. I am also currently experimenting with mixed media by combining painting and photography.
Traditional oil painter and children’s book writer and illustrator. I also offer a selection of fine art print reproductions of my oil paintings as well as original copper plate etchings.
