Early morning view from tables at Breaking New Grounds in Perkins Cove, Me. Perfect spot for morning coffee, watching the tide come in or go out.
Artist. DIYer (yes, I can fix a toilet). Master procrastinator. Creative cook - bad at housework. Lover of gardens, but sad owner of a black thumb. Passionate about animals in general, dogs in particular, with a thing for moose. I did take art classes in college, but pursuing a career in art wasn’t practical, so I got my degree in Psychology (yup – definitely practical!) Worked in that field for a few years and then became – wait for it- an accountant. Do not ask. Eventually the need for a paintbrush took over and I never looked back. I need color. There are no beige walls in my house. Everything I have is decorated with (at least) a dab of paint. This includes all of my family members. I paint whatever catches my eye. Plein air in the spring, summer, fall. Not winter - even though I’m a hardy New Englander I don’t paint outdoors when the temperature dips below freezing (well- actually – below 50), so then it’s time for still lifes. Treasured objects, memories, Happy Meal toys. I am a juried member of the Oil Painters of America and a long time member of NH Plein Air Artists. My paintings like to travel and have found homes across the country and are making their way overseas.
