Untitled photo

i am a painter and a musician who possesses two degrees in english literature. in trying to piece together how these disparate elements influence my art, i realize that i have always just wanted to be part of something beautiful and add to the dialogue of creativity. when i think about why i paint what i paint, i realize that whether i am painting a still life of fiestaware bowls or a portrait of my daughter, i am really just attempting to paint light…and the passage of time….and their effects on the people and objects in our lives. painting is a perpetual challenge – what could be more difficult and elusive than capturing a trick of light, or a moment in time?

thus, i am always striving to improve – which is why i study with the fantastic Carol O’Malia (http://www.omalia.com/).

many of my paintings are inspired by the photography of tom hill (http://www.tom-hill.biz/). thank you, tom, for letting me use your photos.

i am currently focusing on oil painting but i also work in various other media such as acrylic, pastel, ink, and pencil, as well as collages made with strips of paper.

i sell my work off of my easel and at duck soup, sudbury, ma ( http://quackquackquack.com/)
