I am a modern watercolorist who works in a traditional way. I live in upcountry Maui which is the subject of a lot of my Maui work. Having lived on Cape Cod, Massachusetts for a good part of my life, before moving here a few years ago, Hawaii is still thrilling to me. The light, the climate, the colors, the abundance of wonderful views, are all things I don’t take for granted.
I have been in several juried shows since living here including Art Maui, the Hui No’eau Annual Juried Exhibition (where this year I won an Award of Recognition and purchase by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts), Makawao Plein Air Invitational and the Art of Trash where I also received Honorable Mention.
I’ve been in many juried shows on Maui including Art Maui, and seven Hui No’eau Annual Juried Exhibitions, where I’ve won an Award of Recognition and purchase by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. Among other exhibits I’ve participated in the Makawao Plein Air Invitational, Malama Wao Akua, and the Art of Trash where I also received two awards.
I also do a lot of commissions for people or businesses. Some of my watercolor commissions include large pieces for the Tufts-New England Medical Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Fidelity Investments, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, American International Group (AIG), the Arizona Inn, and the late Malcolm Forbes.
