I mostly paint landscapes. I try to capture the feeling of the place, time without getting caught up in too much detail. I have an MFA from B.U. and the following awards and grants: 1) Yale summer fellowship for painting; 2) Johnson Vermont colony grant; 3) Carmargo fellowship. I painted 5 months in the South of France and also painted in Normandy, France with Jason Berger and other artists. I studied with George Nick and Richard Sheehan, and I have taught at the Art Institute of Boston and Boston Center for Adult Education.
