About Me

A multi-medium aging artist and an underwater photographer, I retired from Florida to live on the beach in St. Croix, Virgin Islands. I am delighted with the island’s historic architecture, sunny skies, blue seas, and wonderful reefs. So now my days are full of gardening, painting, diving and snorkeling.

Although I primarily paint in watercolors, I recently dabbled in acrylics and apprenticed with some experienced mural painters. My latest efforts can be seen at St. Patrick's school and Bernie’s, both in Frederiksted. As an avid member of the Palletteers, I paint plein air weekly at different island locations. I also attend water-media workshops, both locally and abroad.

I have donated many of my paintings to local charities and my artwork has been exhibited at many island locations. I hope you enjoy the artwork and phtographs generated here in my new-found paradise. Namasté.

This morning making a general review of my art to be hung in the museum and in browsing through the bin system have decided that things unframed have a much better chance of being sole. It takes so much effort to frame something professionally, and then figure in the cost to only realize that the frame doesn’t really do that much for the art to justify the price a patron will now have to pay. I am enlarging my studio art table to facilitate working on a larger format and questioning if I really should go in that direction. Plein Air certainly calls for nothing larger than 12x16 and Poppies completed in 18x24 format may be difficult to sell because I am finding people do not have that much wall space in the Caribbean for their houses are full of windows.

Painting is difficult and ever so often I have no idea what I am doing. I have decided that I am a risk taker and painting certainly fills that need. Often I produce a product that few value and fewer can afford, so I paint for the pleasure of it and the opportunity to now and again gift a painting. My stormy day was painted in plein air on a sunny day... so who would thought this could happen
