I create art that makes you feel and think. My art is a dialogue between my intellectual and aesthetic approach and your interpretation; however, you may want to do that. The goal is to get you to feel what you are seeing, and for that feeling to continue into your home.
My work is diverse and includes, among others: abstract, contemporary, landscape, portrait, color field, minimalism, photography, and reductive art. Some of these styles blend together, while others stand alone. I am inspired by the moment, and maintain a freedom to create what needs to be created, using whichever medium and technique is most appropriate such as: oil, watercolor, charcoal, oil pastel, photography, acrylic, collage, murals, or videography, etc.

Experiments in Watercolor: Diversity in Luminosity, is a seven-artist exhibit that I have both curated and am in as an artist. The show runs at the UMVA Gallery at 516 Congress Street in Portland, Maine for the month of May, 2022. The artists, including me, are: Alan Crichton, Arthur Nichols, Liz Prescott, Rabee Kiwan, Ed Nadeau, and Jack Silverio. I created this exhibit as an attempt to show how watercolor has many varieties of work. I believe most people think of watercolor as great washes of landscapes and portraits. But I have often worked in the abstract, and many
