I started painting in 1989 and chose watercolor as my primary medium; it continues to be an exciting, fascinating and challenging medium for me. Currently, I am also painting in oils and experimenting with mixed media on hand-painted tiles.

I work primarily on location. My favorite subjects are landscapes - New England street scenes, harbors, and waterfront subjects, particularly on Cape Ann. I also enjoy painting city-scapes of Boston neighborhoods.

To me, a good painting has bold colors, interesting shapes and a definite pattern of lights and darks. This is what I try to achieve in my work.
