I am a Chatham person and have lived here most of my life. Travel is my inspiration. I enjoy re-visiting and reproducing images of places, people and nature that have impressed me. I started painting in oil with community classes and with a group of local artists affiliated with the 2nd. Street gallery and gift shop which I started here in Chatham years ago as a forum for local painters and crafters. Currently I am painting with acrylic on canvass.
