I hope you will enjoy looking at the paintings in this gallery. I have always felt that watercolor need not take a back seat to any other medium in terms of richness of color and depth of tone. In my work I strive to capture all of the clout that other mediums afford, while still retaining the beautiful clarity and transparency that can only be realized in watercolors.  Click on any section below to open that collection.


It is a great joy to try my hand at just about any subject using the  medium of watercolor - animals and birds, land and seascapes, still life arrangements, and portraits.  Largely self taught, I can scarcely remember a time when I didn't have some sort of art implement in hand and one medium or another on a palette beside me. I discovered the challenges and delights of watercolors about 25 years ago and have never looked back. My work has been influenced by some of the finest contemporary watercolorists painting today.

I offer workshops on a regular basis through the Manchester Art Association ( and teach classes in my South Windsor studio.  If you would like to get in touch with me, nothing would please me more.
