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.

April 29, 2013 - Diving

It is so special when your dive buddie is a professional photographer.  Quite frankly modeling is not my thing so these photos become even more significant for Jenny got the shot with my eyes wide open!

April 28, 2013


I have a brain block when it comes to titles for my paintings, so many of my titles are simply stolen.   However, I feel a title should significantly relate the work to a viewer.   I recently sold a piece entitled, VOLKA ON THE ROCKS (a sail boat racing in a crashing sea).  So I am thinking the best titles should allow for free association, so the viewer can make his own connections with the art.  A single word often will do it; such as:   surrender, jubilation, thunder and so it goes
