I paint — on small canvas and paper — mostly landscapes, but also interiors, figures, and still lifes. I work in New England — particularly Connecticut, where I live — near its waterways and seashore, where the light can be specific or universal. 


Here, where water meets land, abstraction meets figuration and so the observed world and the painted form find common ground. I strive for paintings that appear spontaneous, yet refined; paintings that oscillate — one way, then the other — in a balanced imbalance.
