About the Artist
I am a New England based watercolor artist, writer, college professor,
and the author/illustrator of children's books.
Many of the seaside illustrations are from a series of nature books that I've been working on. The first book of this series Seashells - Treasures from the Northeast Coast was published in 2013 by Islandport Press and is available at:
I am thankful that I have these artistic vocations and I'm thrilled to share my work.
Through my art and books I seek to encourage others to appreciate nature's beauty.
I hope that my creative endeavors, in some way, honors my subjects and brings a sense of wonder and/or pleasure to you the viewer.
