Artist Bio

Bio: Art has always been an interest of mine. I have always been a ‘visual’ person. I am a radiologist and spend my days looking at images. I don’t have as much time to paint as I’d like but I always feel a great sense of satisfaction for any time spent painting and consider it time well spent. Painting is mindful – it absorbs me for hours and takes my mind away from work and responsibilities of daily life. The final product is not nearly as important as the process. I like to paint still life and landscapes, particularly plein air. I think spending so much time as a radiologist, indoors in the dark, has made me crave being outdoors! It’s challenging painting under changing light and weather conditions but being outside in nature and painting is a double treat! I am so lucky to live in the northeast - a beautiful part of the country. I have trees, marshes, water, beaches, and rolling hills and farms as well as quaint urban areas within a short drive from my house. For still life subjects, I like portraying the beauty of simple objects. There is so much beauty around me – I will never run out of things to paint! In this ever increasing digital world, art is vitally important to preserve the human spirit. The human spirit is evoked in both creating art and observing art. Art reflects humankind and must be valued.
