My first inspiration is the beauty and power of nature.
Besides sunsets and waves, I have been inspired and awestruck from experiences like watching full moons rising over Indian point or by walking along the numerous inlets . I'm too much of an adventurer to stay with one style or one subject for long.
I like to explore....
I don't always know what I am going to paint when I begin a piece. But I do know that when I feel the moment of being in nature - a hike, a walk along the beach - I try to paint it.
Nature inspires me to attempt to capture it, hold onto it, make sketches and take photographs to be used as aide-mémoires for future paintings.

An oceanfront cottage for rent with breathtaking views of the open ocean and a relaxing atmosphere await you. The view is astounding, and inspired my work for many years. The cottage sits atop the rocky shoreline of Indian Point of Georgetown, Maine.
While here, access several private beaches or travel to nearby coastal villages. Unwind, lounge around the house or at the picnic table on the edge of the rocks. Enjoy watching the waves, boats and waterfowl going by.
At night, relax to the sound of the crashing waves, the smell of the ocean air, and the sight of moonlight reflecting on the water.
The interior has a simple, rustic feel, many larges windows facing the water and abundant natural light.
