ABOUT THE ARTIST
I'm a visual artist based out of the southern Maine area. I specialize in oil and acrylic realism paintings with a focus on local, natural landscapes. My work is influenced by my upbringing in Maine as well as my experiences as an avid hiker and outdoorsman. I studied art, recreation leadership, and art education at the University of Southern Maine in Portland and Gorham, where I received my BFA in Studio Art.
The paintings I create represent how I approach and experience the natural environment: with a sense of empathy, familiarity, and appreciation. My creative process utilizes complementary colors and a limited color palette. My intention is to stay true to the likeness of the landscape while creating an overall sense of visual harmony that is allusive to the symbiosis that occurs in the natural world.
