Artist Statement:

My work is mainly influenced by the beauty I find in "Nature" mainly from "the Sea" also plants and animals. It is a celebration of life in joyous colors, influenced by Nordic landscape from The Faroe Islands and Iceland with bird life (puffins) other motives are inspired by charming Danish villages and coast lines ,The SEA is a constant motive. I have also made paintings. Influenced by visits to Florida Spain,Italy and France


I am working in mainly watercolors,oils and acrylics, but also doing egg tempera,collages and graphics, paintings on silk, some large wall hangings and wall murals. Generally described as,Expressionist,Colorist
One Critic Wrote in the Cape Cod Times....."Imaginative,original work,with the Primitive Charme of Russeau and the sense for color ane light as Raul Dufy"
