"Would you know the artist? Then go seek him in his labors." Lilla Cabot Perry 1848-1933

Art has been my passion since my first scribbles and crayon drawings. Now I work with several mediums, doing landscapes, portraits and life drawings. My work is somewhere between realism and impressionism. It reflects my love of shapes and colors, and of nature and the human figure. I believe, that when I paint or draw, my imagination, and the memories of places I’ve been, and the people I’ve met, guide both my brush and my pencil.
