I am pleased to offer Giclée prints of my original oil paintings! Printed on gessoed canvas with archival inks, and then stretched over 1/2" pine stretcher bars, these prints have the look, feel, and vibrancy of an original oil painting at a more affordable price.

Gallery of Paintings

Born and raised on the coast of Maine, and surrounded by Acadia National Park, I have always had a deep fascination with edges: edge of land, edge of storm, edge of day. These intense intersections, these meetings of extremes, give rise to such spectacular yet fleeting beauty. Through my paintings, I endeavor to capture the power and beauty of these moments at the edges of Acadia.


Portraits

My work with portraiture is an invaluable counterpoint to my landscapes painting. Portraits enable me to focus on the intricate details of the face, that landscape of experience, thought, memory, and the site of human connection. The face reflects a richness and depth of experience and emotion that rivals the scope of the landscape. For each person, the face holds countless stories, stories hinted at with the subtlest glint of an eye, or a twist of the mouth, and suggestive of those deep moments of joy, sadness, love, and humor that comprise each of us. It is this depth, and these stories, that I seek to capture in my portraits.

I am currently accepting commissions for landscape and portrait painting. I've created oil paintings for a number of clients from Dallas to Istanbul.
