Collectors tell me that my paintings make them feel like they are really there, inviting them to experience what I did while painting it. I paint what I love about New England-its people, lakes, seacoasts, waterfalls, mountains and more. It is a rich counterpane of beauty. Nova Scotia is also in my heart since we spent summers there while I was growing up. It was there, where we had no TV nor other distractions, that my lifelong calling grew. I also like painting further afield in places like the Catskills and even the Niagara Falls area.

My work is traditional, capturing a small part of  the beauty of the real world. Being outdoors and painting en plein air is my delight. My paintings are in private and corporate collections from New England to Colorado, Florida to Nova Scotia. I also do commissions, so please contact me if you would like to have a special painting done.  If you would like to receive occasional email updates about recent work or events, please sign up for my newsletter. On Etsy you will find digital downloads of my work and related home decor items in my shop RealNewEnglandArt. Thanks very much for stopping by and I hope my work brings a little joy to your day,
