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.

And here goes January! You know I just like to paint and hate the showing part, but guess it makes me finish up my work. Opening a show at Polly's Cafe on the 8th of February and I think this pair of Moko-Jumbies will be a hit.

One would think my life is a little choatic, but in reality I am a person of routine. I have become a serious painter and spend long hours in the studio. I strive to paint every day and this has become my job to develope my skills. I will continue to strive to think abstractly, draw shapes and look for the light, atmosphere, value. Light is the most important element.

Back at it and have decided that painting is all about observation. I will strive to think abstractly, not look at the object in a traditionaly manor. Look at light, atmosphere, value, color edges and shapes. Dwell on light for it is the most important element. Then let the paint flow.

Spent the holidays with the Florida Family and squeezed in a trip to Grand Bahamas. Visited two of my favorite dive sites, had dolphins visit and did a little hunting. Good thing I dive with kids a century younger than me who can get me in and out of the sea
