I began painting 30 years ago while working with the Bread and Puppet Theater. I was primarily a puppeteer, but during my free time I was inspired to paint by the work of Peter Schumann, creator and director of Bread and Puppet Theater.
I paint what I know and love - Vermont. I never tire of the landscape - it inspires and awes me every hour, every day.
My painting is simple and direct. I work in acrylic on masonite.
For many years I have sold my work at the Montpelier Farmer's market. During the holiday season, I create a pop-up store with the work of many other local artists. Several times a year I have an exhibit at a public space.
I want to make my art affordable and available to people who appreciate original art but can't afford the prices of a gallery. I have used the banner of "Cheap Art", which is a term used for many years by the Bread and Puppet Theater.
Recently, I have developed a line of note cards which are available at this website. I also sell original work.
