Original Watercolor
7" X 13"

Welcome to my website. I am a Maryland native and live at the head of the Chesapeake Bay where Tidewater meets the Piedmont. I paint the landscape, architecture and people of this scenic area and also of the Down East coast of Maine where I have a summer studio. Travels to Ireland to explore my Celtic roots have added subjects from the British Isles to my portfolio.

I paint in the style of traditional realism in the mediums of watercolor and oil. My paintings reflect my life journey. Art is a connection to the inner soul and my paintings are a direct response to something that has touched me emotionally. For me the joy of painting is in capturing and sharing a moment in time from the beauty in the world around me.

"Rainy Monday" was inspired by a ride in Pennsylvania on a cloudy,dreary day in the Spring. I was surprised to find unexpected beauty in the reflections on the water- covered road. The subject seemed perfect for expressing in a wet into wet watercolor!

Now summer has begun and we are basking in its heat and humidity.It is a wonderful time for plein air painting so look for new paintings on my website soon.Meanwhile after the 4th of July has passed our thoughts return to Autumn and classes.I have posted my fall schedule on the Classes & Workshops Page. I have made a change in classes for the fall. My Wednesday class will now be held on Thursday.
