I have worked with creative medium including oils, watercolor,
Itaglio print-making, lithography, and graphic design.
My work has consisted of landscape painting, printmaking, seascapes, watercraft,
industrial themes, and architectural waterfronts and cityfront scenes along waterways.
I have shown my work locally and regionally since 1990.
I work as a tugboat Captain and I am inspired by the view from the wheelhouse while working routes between Maine to New Orleans including the Intracoastal Waterway.
My current work reflects the waterfront I know.
Tugs, sailing craft, light houses, waterfowl, city fronts, and classic watercraft
have always commanded my attention and piqued my interest.
Through my work I try to share some of these subjects and inspired moments.
“My most important work currently consists of constructing digital works using the Adobe Creative Suite of products to make art in layers of colored shapes.
The process is similar to the manner in which a serigraph is composed of layers of color applied over one another-some opaque, some transparent.
I call this process “Digital Serigraphy”, or “Digital Serigraph” as the result is style reminiscent of the“Fruit Crate Art” of the late 1800’s.
The saturated color, simplicity of composition and detail-a style
that encompasses a “less is more” proposition.”
The process of layering color, as in creating a serigraph,
or “silkscreen” print is well suited to creating prints digitally.
Reducing a composition to its light, color and structural elements
provides a very clean aesthetic and an interpretive approach to creativity.
