plein air painting at Fort HillAfter a successful 30+ year career as an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator, I’ve returned to my first love for painting and drawing as a pastel artist. How light affects form and color and composition are the fundamentals I use to reflect the beauty and diversity found in nature and in people.

I’m fortunate to live part-time on Cape Cod where the unique light, color and landscapes provide endless opportunities for inspiration and subject matter. Travel also has an influence on my art. Seeing and interpreting as an artist gives me fresh perspectives on the places I’ve seen and the people I’ve met.
