Sold. Abstract Art t Art Up Front Street in Uptown Exeter, NH.


SOLD, "Along the River", 18x36, abstract landscape. 

Thank you to Kathy for falling in love. That is the best way I can describe what happened. 
Kathy came in to the studio (for the first time) with a friend who has been here several times. 
She told me how much she related to art the friend had purchased and began to walk the gallery and studio. She found this painting and said she wanted to purchase it. Then told me something that I almost didn't know what to do with. 

She said, very directly, she only buys things she loves. And that she has had an empty wall in her kitchen for five years and ...this was going there. 

Part of what I am always amazed with is the connection and attraction by someone else to the marks that come from my heart and hand. There is "something" in this color and imagery that she relates to. Something that means quite a bit to her for her to decide that "this" is "the piece" for her home. I am constantly warmed by the words of viewers. 

Of course I move in these circles of color because I love creating this work. It brings me to a meditative spot. I love the exploration. But then when someone else sees it, and has a connection, I can't claim that spot anymore. It goes to another place. I am grateful for the moment I have had to invent or to build or to be consummed by the flow of the process. is someone else's story and energy.
What is this that I am feeling? I can't explain.

Thank you Kathy. I hope you enjoy this painting for years to come.

Private Art Lessons for Adults

 "I want to explore something different..... I need a little time to nurture my soul..... I really want to paint something for my child's room.... my sister.... my first art show....."

I hear so many good reasons for stepping out to make that first move... or to respark creativity. 

I work with adults on a very flexible basis. If you want one-on-one time to explore acrylic painting... or ... if you would rather paint in your own studio and only want the occasional consultation, arrangements can be made.

Times are generally, 11am or 1pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The cost is $40 an hour.
I schedule the same time slot for you each week.

We can meet every week, every other week, or schedule consultations once a month. We can work either inside the gallery surrounded by art or outside in the studio garden surrounded by nature.

.... currently taking sign-ups. Contact me at if you have questions or want to take a studio tour to see if this is a good fit for you.
