My images are created with oil paint, palette knife, brush, rollers, splatters, spots and streaks. They are paint, and at the same time they are ocean. I use paint to surprise and enchant the viewer, evoking the feel of spray from the water, the smell of freshness in the moist air, the ocean breeze and warm sun on your face. Eternity. Infinity.

Through a federal grant and my affiliation with the Museum School, I designed and painted murals in public spaces in the Boston area and I completed over 80 mural commissions nationally with sites that include Louis of Boston and Timberland in San Francisco.
