Being born and raised in the Vermont landscape has deeply influenced my painting. I am incredibly moved by the visual poetry in the trees and fields that surround me and look to capture and celebrate that in my artwork. I explore the hidden backwoods of Vermont every day seeking new inspiration.
I use a non-toxic, mixed media approach that consists of charcoal and casein on board to produce my black and white paintings. I paint mostly in black and white because of the way it lends a direct dynamic simplicity to the image.
My current focus is The Bumblebee Series, for which I received a 2013 creation grant from the Vermont Arts Council to help produce. Please check back soon for more information.
