|Biography||With a graduate degree in poetry, I taught college English and art history for several years before falling in love with American landscape painting and becoming a professional full-time artist. Drawing on that background, my work begins in mood and emotion, encompassing Tonalism and extending to abstraction through a contemporary sensibility.
I teach studio and plein-air workshops and classes in Lowell, Mass and continue to write for several arts and humanities blogs as well as the magazine Art New England.
