I am a representational painter working primarily in pastels and oils to create paintings inspired by the landscapes and people I encounter in the diverse places I love - the wooded hills of upstate NY and New England, the beaches and harbors of the East Coast,  and the streets of New York City.

My figurative paintings depict a moment in time in everyday life, a fleeting glance that may reveal the mood or character of the subject.  In all of my work, I strive to capture the quality of light that can transform an ordinary scene into a compelling work of art.
