Artistry. Nature. Imagination.

Do you love to walk in nature? Among the trees and flowers and plants? Do you get excited when you see a gorgeous bloom? I sure do, always stopping to appreciate neighborhood gardens. Peonies, roses, daisies, endless varieties of beautiful flowers inspire me!

Autumn here in New England is spectacular. That’s when I’m collecting fallen leaves so I can paint their portraits in oils.  Sometimes I dry them and paint dried leaves too!

The charms of nature are abundant.

And this is what inspires me.

I can’t recreate nature, but I can interpret it. Rembrandt said, “Choose only one master — Nature.”

So if you like nature, and you like art, as most of us do, stick around because I’d love to share my creations with you.

A little about me.

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t draw or paint. It’s part of me. After art school, I was a graphic designer. I designed all sorts of direct mail marketing materials, as well as magazines. Which is why my creations have a design sense to them. Art meets design, if you will.

These days, I have more time in the studio, so I’m experimenting a lot and having fun!

Have a look at the shop here to see the latest gardens and botanicals I’ve created for you.
