Though I was an art teacher early in my career and have painted off-and-on for most of my life, my professional experience has largely been as a bureacrat/manager/statistician--very dry and stressful, enlivened only rarely by out-of-the-box exuberance and risk-taking. But for the past several years I have been retired and live overlooking Lake Wyola in Shutesbury, MA. I am now happily painting (watercolors and acrylics), fly-fishing from my kayak, golfing, and playing tennis. I share my home with three dogs, two cats, two parakeets, and whatever the cats drag in. (A frog in the dogs' water dish?) The doggies and I walk the adjacent pine woods daily, and I take a lot of pictures.

Sometimes my own photos inspire my paintings, and sometimes pictures found in newspapers, magazines, and other media serve to start the process. Occasionally I paint from life. Whatever the source, the result is a closer feeling for the subject. I love to paint--the act consumes me. I tend to fall in love with my subjects as I strive to capture them, simplify them, change them. As with any good interaction, the process changes me, as well.I grow in kinship with the surrounding world. I am grateful for the greater connection. I hope you enjoy my work. It certainly has given me great joy!
