My lifelong passion for painting and drawing has become a full time obsession since my retirement from academic life in 2013.  For several years I studied classical painting technique with Barbara Johnson.  I work primarily in oils but also in charcoal and pastel. Among contemporary artists, my paintings have been influenced by Randall Deihl, Scott Prior and Jane Lund, whose work is representative of the neorealist school of regional art in Western Massachusetts.   I am irresistibly drawn to Vermeer and Hopper, who capture the holiness of light in intimate moments of solitude and reflection. I look upon art as more of a craft than a means of individual expression.  For me, the work itself is a form of meditation. I am informed and humbled by centuries of tradition and inspired by contemporary artists who have mastered their medium and whose visions have enriched our perceptions of the world we inhabit
