From 5-7pm in our Tasting Room
Having grown up in the urban setting of Cleveland, Ohio, I have always craved open, undeveloped natural landscapes. For the past two decades, I’ve been lucky to live in rural Connecticut and Maine, where the natural world is ever-present.
Moving to New England inspired me to begin painting, so I could capture on canvas my impressions and feelings about this beautiful part of the world. The landscapes I am intrigued by are full of color and light, of lines and shadows and of sky. I am especially drawn to the sculptural shapes and lines and the varied colors of trees.
My paintings have been described as “kinetic and bold” and “vibrating with color and movement.” I paint both on-site and from my imagination, sometimes using both techniques for one piece.
My work has been influenced by the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, Marsden Hartley, and the Impressionists.
