Open June 28 through July 9, 2022 in the Gordon Grant room. Open free to the public.
The focus of this Solo Show will be marine subjects with original watercolor paintings of Cape Ann shores, sea scapes, lighthouses, beach scenes, sea birds, the breaking surf, schooners, dories, and even a few Florida beach scenes. My style is a blend of realism and impressionism, with a very colorful pallet and “Cape Ann School” lighting, expressing happy emotions and quiet moods that are easy to read.
I have been a resident of Manchester by the Sea more than 50 years. I am a graduate of Tufts University and Northeastern University with degrees in Physical Therapy. I was commissioned in the Navy and after graduation was stationed at Chelsea Naval Hospital working with casualties from the Vietnam War. After my service I was Chief Physical Therapist at Beverly Hospital. I raised a family of three children and concurrently consulted for community health organizations and the public school systems. I specialized in childhood development and senior care.
Upon retirement from healthcare, I did a complete about face and began a hobby as a painter . This quickly became a passion. I am an artist member of the North Shore Arts Association, the Rockport Art Association and Museum, and the New England Watercolor Society. I paint and teach in my studio in Manchester.
