Artist Statement

Currently, I live in the lower Hudson River Valley.  My work includes portraits, cityscapes and landscapes.  I work primarily in watercolor, oil pastels, and pen and ink.  Most of my pastels are studio paintings; the watercolors, pen and inks are primarily done on-site.  While most of my work is of the Hudson River Valley, Eastern Long Island, and New England, the particular place, mountain or ridgeline is really secondary.  Rather, the focus is on mood, time of day, season, atmosphere, after a rain or just before a storm. I have exhibited throughout the Hudson River Valley and New England including The Coop (Peekskill, NY), Croton-on-Hudson Free Library, Flat Iron Gallery (Peekskill, NY), Garrison Art Center, John C. Hart Memorial Library (Shrub Oaks, NY), Hooper House (Nyack, NY), Lyme New Hampshire Public Library, Norwich Vermont Art Center, the Raptor Center (Woodstock, Vermont), Peekskill Coffeehouse, Rutheny’s Art Gallery (Croton-on-Hudson, NY), and Gravity Gallery (Norwalk, CT).  I am a member of the Croton Council of the Arts, the Art Students League of New York and the Garrison Art Center. I have taught painting and life drawing at the Croton-on-Hudson Continuing Education Program, the Croton Cortlandt Center for the Arts and to private individuals. I have created a dual program that brings science and current sustainable environmental issues into an art workshop.  I am a Teaching Artist with Arts Westchester.
