After 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. Composition is paramount in my paintings as well as how light affects form and color. I work en plein air and/or from my own reference photographs and field notes. I’m fortunate to live part-time on Cape Cod where the unique light, color and vistas provide endless opportunities for inspiration and subject matter. Travel is another passion and in my pastels I work to capture the special qualities of places I’ve visited.
