In 2015 I began experimenting with abstraction in my landscape painting, andI soon realized that I didn’t need the landscape, however beautiful—that what fascinates me most is the act of painting itself. Exploring color, texture, shapes, and marks with different tools—brushes, pencils, oils sticks and paint knives—-is exciting and challenging. Engaging with the painting itself to find a way toward a satisfying completion is a compelling, if sometimes seemingly endless, adventure. My work has changed not just in becoming abstract, but in expressing a complexity and intensity that I do not pretend to understand.
I have studied at The Art Students League in New York, at the Artists Association of Nantucket, The Nantucket School of Art and Design, and the Woodstock School of Art.
My work is currently exhibited at the Cecilia and Seward Johnson Gallery on Nantucket.
