Somerset, Massachusetts, USA
I grew up in Southeastern Massachusetts on the coast in a rural area spending most of my time in, on or around the water. I have a BS in Advertising Design from the University of Massachusetts. I was trained as a “commercial” designer and worked in that field for nearly 40 years in various jobs. The whole time I wanted to paint, finally getting my chance after retirement. It took about three years to start producing real work. Now I can’t stop. I like acrylics for their drying speed and my work is evolving to simplicity and strong colors. I make series of paintings derived from travels, my sketchbook, sailing etc.
“Tallships” represents the many such gatherings I have witnessed. I’ve always been taken with the way the rigging, spars and masts divided the very sky into shards of blue and other colors. I’ve tried to enable you to see it that way too. Hope you do.
