Artist Statement:
Although I grew up in the North Country, I have been very influenced by my years spent in urban environments during college and afterwards and by my travels to Africa. Those influences show up in my images frequently. I try to have a conversation through my work, with the viewer. I try to connect with the viewer in a positive way and maybe tell a story or share an idea. Images that convey peace, oneness, love, staying in the moment…pop up in many paintings and prints that I produce.

Because I have been a freelance illustrator since 1987, story telling through my art, comes naturally for me. My paintings are influenced by my illustration work and visa versa. As with most any other artist, what I experience in my life flows on into my work.
