Artist of the Month
I primarily work in oils and also in pastels and charcoal, I enjoy painting portraits, figures, landscapes, interiors, and combinations of them. I paint quickly. Once the canvas is covered, whether it be a portrait, figure, or landscape, that’s when the painting begins. I strive to convey a sense of soul of my subjects, the spirit of place for my landscapes, and to make viewing the painting an interactive experience. My recent work focuses on capturing a mood or telling a story in the painting Lately, I’ve been painting multiple versions of the same subject or different views over time.
I have had numerous one-man shows at the Cutter Gallery in Arlington, MA, The Watchmaker in Stoneham, MA and the Stoneham Library and other Libraries in Mass and NH. I’ve also participated in group shows at Stove Factory Gallery and Cambridge Adult Ed Center. I have also has displayed and talked about my work on the Porter Arts Group TV Show on Stoneham local access cable.

I look forward to having a one man show as well as participating in group shows. For themes, I do landscapes, paintings of cars, trucks and heavy machinery, portraits, and paintings with multiple figures. I especially like the theme of painting a view of an interior and exterior in the same picture, also sometimes with paintings on the wall of the interior. To contribute I could share sitting time for a group show which I have done at the Stove Factory Gallery in the past.
