Welcome!





Over the course of my long career I have gone off in a variety of directions and experimented with different mediums.

My current focus is primarily landscape inspired abstraction. The work is mixed media on paper, canvas or birch panel. I have been fortunate to work with decorators and galleries on many projects for both residential and commercial clients from New York to Florida and points in-between.

I also enjoy plein air landscape painting in pastels and oil.

New Barn

Our new barn was this past summer's project. The barn will serve as our summer studio. Very excited to finally have a good space to work in at Dragonwood. Still more work to do before we have it finished, but we got it this far this year. The rest will have to wait until we return next summer.
Always enjoy a visit to Golden Artist Colors in New Berlin, NY.

"Frida's"

Another from my ongoing series of interiors. This acrylic painting measures 12.75" X 15". This series began in the 1990's and was very popular with collectors at the Roselawn Galleries in Rochester, NY until they closed in 2003ish. I did several dozen at least and all of the originals from that time period sold. Prints and notecards are available of some of them. I have had some renewed interest here in Florida and have made several new interior paintings. The new paintings are all being made into notecards, prints and canvas tranfers and are available at Gallery on First in Sanford or contact me directly. I will ship anywhere in North America. This original is currently available. Contact me for price.

New Monoprints




Here are two of several new monoprints  that I have enjoyed making. I have made monoprints off and on over the last thirty years.  These are done using the "Strappo"  technique developed by Mr. Harold Garde.

I did a couple dozen last spring.  Seems they were popular.  Most of the first batch sold and are now in collections in several states.

I really have a lot of fun making them.  Enjoy!
