I live and work on a beautiful pond at the base of a small mountain in Peterborough, New Hampshire. The landscape of this small corner of the state, known as the Monadnock Region, has had a powerful pull on artists for more than 200 years. In the last 10 years the rural character of the land has become the focus of my work.
My landscapes, painted in oil, attempt to capture the unique beauty of the region. I am especially drawn to the wetlands – marshes, boggy meadows, spring-flooded fields – in part because they are constantly changing, season to season and hour to hour. But also because they are so affected by the light and hold so many secrets.
I often find that a spot I have chosen-- a meadow road, an open field, or deserted farm building – turns out to be protected, and for that I am grateful.
