As an artist of the Adirondack Mountains, focusing on landscapes, wildlife and regional interests, I enjoy expressing richly rooted traditions, capturing movement of trees and lakes, the depth of details and the luminous light that draws so many visitors from around the world. Reality and capture of light is one of the aspects most commented on of my work which I attribute to exposure of light throughout the Adirondacks, but also of California where I grew up, before returning to New York, my home state.

MY PLEIN AIR: sketches of the day, a postcard of sorts, a memento, accomplished quickly, within a few hours. Brushstroke by brushstroke an original piece of art is created, some more serious than others.
THE JOURNEY: Imagine random or planned, seeking out a location. Carefully, with expediency, setting up your equipment to begin a work that you will be intently focused on for the next few hours. Unlike a studio piece there’s a need to think and work quickly. Light changes, therefore tones, colors and composition are altered. Adrenaline garnered from the experience of having your living subject thriving in front of you pushes you to get lost in time. It’s addicting, ...the fresh air, rain or shine and the unexpected surprises of wildlife, ...after all, I quietly work in one location for what can be hours. I have discovered, Nicky my boarder collie, can also sit, curled up next to me for hours, bar the occasional squirrel temptation. So try to imagine the experience of the day, appreciate the broad, loose brushstrokes, the essence of plein air. Not always perfect but worth the lessons and the journey.
