About the Artist

I am a local artist working primarily in oil or oil and encaustic combined.   I also make terracotta and low-fired porcelain sculptures.  My subject matter ranges from portraits, equestrian and wildlife art to landscapes and seascapes, and lately, some florals.  Many of my paintings are done from photographs or videos because of the choice of subject matter.   

I often combine oils and encaustic wax medium.  Encaustic wax is an artistic medium dating back to ancient Egypt and was used to paint portraits on wood mummy cases.   Many have survived until today in good condition.    The word encaustic means “to burn in” and refers to the use of heat to fuse the wax to the painting.  The encaustic material is a combination of beeswax, colored or clear, and damar resin. Encaustics give a luminous quality and varied texture to the paint.   

There are three paintings labeled ‘faux fresco’ in the exhibit.  I experimented painting with oil on dry plaster, unlike real frescos which are water-based paints fused into wet plaster.

Although I was a math major in the 1960s, I was fortunate to have an art course with Karl Dreup, and throughout the 1980s I took several art courses with painter Annette Mitchell and sculptor Bob Morton, all from Plymouth State.  Since retiring a decade ago, I have had the time to spend painting or modelling whatever interests me.  This is my second exhibit, both held at the Gordon Nash Library.  I am a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association.

I am donating 100% of the proceeds from any paintings sold to the fight against human trafficking (many of the victims being children) through the organization, Samaritan’s Purse.  I decided to state that fact in order to draw attention to one of the organizations engaged in this struggle.  You do not have to purchase a painting in order to join in this battle; you can go directly to http://www.samaritanspurse.com to make a donation.

I will also do portrait commission work of people or pets in oil or charcoal.

About the Artist

I have always enjoyed creating things. As a child I drew with my great grandmother and I have never stopped since. My parents even let me paint on the basement walls. I studied at the New Hampshire Institute of Art for a year and a half and was on the Deans List all three semesters. I feel very blessed to have a talent like this and strive day to day to use it in some creative way. An artist’s work is never done and there are always new things to move on to.

My favorite subject is landscapes. Within the landscape we see the grandeur of the Lords mighty Hand. God is the only true artist. We can only try our feeble attempts to create artwork from his wonderful masterpiece. Every day God gives us a different sky and a whole new set of colors in every season. “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained…” (Psalms 8:3) God created everything down to the smallest spec. “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (Ephesians 4:6) I look forward to each new day for another adventure to be expressed with a brush. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above…” (James 1:17)
