About the Artist
"I am working to capture the vanishing Maine landscape through my pastels. The open fields of hay, corn and other crops with just a hint of human occupation in the distance remind me of my childhood in central Maine. I look to capture the light reflecting off the trees, hay bales, distant metal roofs, and blades of grass.
I love the vibrant red blueberry fields in October, the marshes and bogs and other somewhat hidden and under-explored places. I look for the blues and lavenders in the snow in winter; the golds and the greens in summer.
My pastel paintings are bright. My style is impressionistic. I don't strive to capture every little detail. Instead, I am looking to capture the essence of a place, a time of year or a time of day."
