My greatest influences are a diverse group: children’s book illustrations (especially from the 1920’s), both French and American Impressionism (particularly Claude Monet, Matilda Browne and Childe Hassam), and American artists Edward Hopper, Andrew Wyeth, Grandma Moses and Lillian Wescott Hale. Although each of these artists had their own distinct style, their individual ability to see beauty in simplicity has always left me awestruck.

I love to paint images that touch my heart. It is the most natural and expressive way to be an artist. I find that if I paint a subject that touches my soul deeply it has the power to connect with someone else’s heart and they can create their own story. I do not seek to make grand statements about the world, preferring to paint the quiet beauty of my surroundings.

Through my paintings, I hope to transport the viewer into a rural world of timelessness. Nature is full of mystery and magic dressed in the subtleties of passing light. I see the exquisiteness in a spider’s web woven amongst the grass. I can hear the voices of past summers in weatherworn, empty Adirondack chairs. The patchwork of an ancient farm reveals to me the fortunes and hardships of the people that once lived there. Old bowls, vases, and pictures, objects of everyday, become portraits of their former owners. I see possibilities in seashells and memories in flowers. There is the soft humming of life that I hope to convey, an undercurrent that speaks of heartbreak, humor and the fleeting movement of time. If I can capture these elements on canvas then I can tell you the most amazing stories.

It would take at least five lifetimes to paint all the images in my mind, one for each season and another for all the lovely people and animals I have met along the way. I am the luckiest of people because I have been blessed with the ability to see in pictures. To me, art is a love affair with nature. My paintings are both my biography and my legacy.
