Juried in to The Cape Ann Artisans, November 2018

I am thrilled to be a new member of the Cape Ann Artisans! This diverse group features artists and artisans from Gloucester and Rockport. Twice a year, spring and fall, they host an Open Studio tour that is very popular. A list of artisans and a map is published, and people do a self-guided tour. It's a great opportunity for artists to interact with the public, who get to see a working studio and chat with the artist about his or her work. Both events are all weekend, with the fall tour being 3 days. 

January-April 2012: The Lucky Whale Tale & more...

It's been a productive winter. I dove right in to painting after the boating season ended and produced close to one painting every week. Armed with plenty of my own photos, I started with the yellow dories and some nice reflections. With my inventory building, I started thinking about getting some additional gallery space lined up. My first lucky break was running into Mona Fahery at the Pier 7 Christmas Party. She offered me space in her office at the Rocky Neck Accommodations! I'm looking forward to setting that up as a gallery soon.

Update: December 2011

I've been busy at the drawing table for the past three months since the end of the boating (and photography) season. Commissioned work includes two watercolors and whole bunch of pen-and-ink home portraits. My favorite subject matter continues to be boats and their reflections. I've developed a particular fascination with the yellow Gloucester dories. To me they are nearly as iconic as the Fisherman himself, or Gloucester's "motif", the old paint factory.
