 I do not choose the subjects that I paint they choose me I just happen upon them in my minds endless wandering for inspiration and they appear when I least expect them.

 I  paint in oils and watercolor  I am drawn to the native landscapes in  NJ, Maine and  Pennsylvania. The  love of still life has  always intrigued me after seeing  my first Cezanne which spurred my love of the genre.
