“I photograph what I do not wish to paint and I paint what I cannot photograph.” 

- Man Ray 

My work as a visual artist has mostly expressed itself in my relationship to Nature and the land on which I live. Witnessing the land in all its seasons and its many moods supplies much of the inspiration for my paintings and photographs.

It's important for my landscapes to express not only my emotional connection to the land but to hopefully instill in others the peace and serenity that I experience in Nature–and now more than ever–the urgent necessity for active stewardship of our land and water.

While my photographs are almost exclusively made on or within just a few miles of my homestead, my paintings are more often composites of scenes I've observed, or in many cases, landscapes I would like simply wander through.

In addition to landscape photography, I have begun to explore documentary photography as a way to address current issues. I am particularly interested in the "power of the portrait" as a way to call attention to marginalized populations and to combat the growing voices of division and exclusion.

My current project, Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border, will be exhibited throughout 2022. Please see "Current Exhibitions" for details. 

I'm continuing with another portrait project, "Face to Face: Portraits from the Precipice"  which seeks to explore and celebrate diversity while hopefully serving as an antidote to the rising tide of hate and bigotry. Please check back for the exhibit schedule in 2023.

Thank you so much for your interest and support!

I'm very pleased to announce that my landscape paintings are available at the Hamilton Center for the Arts in Hamilton, NY. Hamilton is home to Colgate University and is a great little upstate town with lots of arts and culture, nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.
