A Bunch of Buoys
A Window on Sunset
Buoys on the Dock
The color and chaos of life calls to me. My drive to be immersed in color knows no bounds. I have been painting professionally for 18 years. I studied independently with Ed Stit, Boston and Barnett Rubenstein at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts
I paint primarily with pallet knife in oil paint. Pallet knife allows me to respond to textures with a gestural thickness. Painting impasto, thick and lush, contributes boldness and assertiveness to color. Using paint thinly, almost transparently with one color over another, gives an ethereal complexity and a depth to color. I intend for my paintings to move for the viewer; unexpected color and varied painting application techniques make the movement happen. A still life is never still and neither is life.
I have received numerous awards over the years. My paintings are in the public collections of Dana Farber Hospital, Children''s Hospital and Meditech.
