A graduate of Parson’s School of Design in New York City, I’m known as a professional artist in the Pacific Northwest for painting urban landmarks, primarily bridges. Recently, influenced by Edward Hopper’s landscape paintings of New England, Arthur Dove’s modern and abstract works, and Hudson River School artist John Frederick Kensett’s “luminism” in his American landscape paintings. I am currently creating plein air landscapes using blue and crimson primary colors. Using chip brushes, dabbing like hitting the canvas, creating a texture, it is fascinating how this technique brings out some kind of peculiar magic that I need to experience again and again. I was staying at the Oregon coast and a little each day I would walk barefoot at the beach, “earthing” to aid recovery from covid, and I soon discovered the ambiance of the crisp need to do plein air!
