My approach to oil painting has been informed by the classical painting techniques of the Old Masters which I studied for several years with Barbara Johnson. It is an absorbing but time consuming process which can produce subtle, jewel-like tones through layers of applied glazes. 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.  It is a creative process that absorbs the hand and heart.  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
