I live and work in Concord, Massachusetts. All of my paintings are based on some tangible point of reference, although a picture may move away considerably from the starting point before it is finished. I paint family and friends and objects, patterns, and interiors that interest me. I am more concerned with shapes and colors than achieving the actual likeness of things.
