My paintings are now including pleine aire work inspired by the landscape beauty of the Southwest.


My monotype prints are figurative, often with several poses on one print. The drawings use combinations of charcoal, graphite and conte.  I paint in oils, including figurative imagery and architectural elements. Currently, I am adding Plein Are painting in oils to my repertoire. These are completed in one day, working outdoors,  from the Sedona landscape.


"Caffeinated Art" emerged from my coffee addiction and the desire to use recycled materials. The Boston and Sedona landmarks are created entirely from used espresso pods. They are embedded in a layer of resin, protecting the surface and enhancing the colors. My current images are inspired by the Red Rock landscape of the Southwest.
