Artist Statement: "My painting is a record of my observation with a largely unconscious expression of my emotions, abstracting details to the simple essence of the design."

I look forward to return to my home at the Jersey shore on LBI painting the local scene and seeing old friends again. I never tire of the beauty of the Island. I focus on bringing awareness to the viewer of the importance of preserving this treasure. Working with watercolor allows me
a spontaneity and translucency for depicting water and sky.
