Thank you for spending your time looking at this website! I am a painter from midcoast Maine, currently residing in Nobleboro. It is impossible for me to verbally explain my love for the coast, and for Maine in general, which is why I paint. At least partially. I draw endless inspiration from my books on Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, and the world of Art History and Contemporary Art alike. Inspiration is never in short supply with so much beauty in the natural world, and so much brilliant artwork to be studied.
Beyond my own selfish need to express my soul through art, I would like my paintings to serve a purpose and add value to this world. My mission is to create art that gives people the same sense of grounding, calm, and fascination that I get from looking out over the rocks and trees in a harbor. I strive to create portraits and still lifes that embody that feeling, as well as landscapes. I want to break out of the boxes of conventional compositions and create representational art that is truly new and exciting.
These are lofty goals. I have a lifetime of work to do, and I hope to share it with you. I hope you enjoy the work that I have created so far, and please don't hesitate to contact me for any reason.
