I live in the "North Country," the area of New York above the Adirondack Mountains near the Canadian border. I have experience in graphic design, web design, children's books, and book covers, among other things. I enjoy dabbling in different styles of artwork, and always have several projects going at once.
These days I find myself mostly a pastel painter and poster artist. I have always loved to travel, and have increasingly found myself seeking out beautiful natural settings, especially in Upstate NY and the Adirondack foothills. I am inspired to create artwork from my travels as well, and share these scenes that I find. As a painter, I work in the style of Modern Impressionism. Modern impressionists seek to capture the fleeting effects of light through loose and expressive marks. When you really connect with a landscape, its all about the mood you feel, it’s hold on you, and you respond to it emotionally. It’s like gazing into the eyes of another person for one intimate moment.
