Located with the Blue Door Artists in downtown Fernandina Beach, Florida, on Centre Street between 2nd and 3rd Streets, up the colorful stairs (over Amelia Island Coffee). My office/ gallery is the next to last door on the left.

I work in acrylic paint that is thick and translucent. It is applied mostly with painting knives which I use along with other tools to shape and draw into the paint while it is still wet. Layers are added after the paint dries, building up the surface and changing the colors, sometimes in surprising ways. It is a process of discovery that makes me want to keep exploring the potential of this medium to mimic the complexities in nature.


I live in Fernandina Beach, Florida where I paint and am a free-lance architect.  I was born and raised in Rhode Island where I had the good fortune to take art classes throughout my years of public school education. 

Northeast Florida has been my home since graduating in architecture from Rhode Island School of Design in 1974.  While working in architecture, I continued to explore various art forms and participated in workshops and classes with many wonderful local teachers.  In the mid-1980’s I studied acrylic painting with artist Jeanne Pellegrino and developed a passion for the medium and for working in color.
