I do acrylic painting of people as well as seascapes and lighthouses. Originally educated and raised in the Webster area, I’ve been in Southhbridge area since 1979 where I married then brought up my sons. I started taking photographs and had a few in shows in New London CT in 2008, even having some published and sold. About 4 years ago, after becoming a fan of lighthouses, I met Polly Seip, artist from Uncasville who painted from one of my photos which in turn inspired me to try to paint lighthouses. Having been a portrait artist, I needed to learn. I’ve since sold several around the country, being inspired from rides and boat trips and visits to some mostly in New England. I even donated a few to lighthouses to help them raise money for supporting them and had one put in a museum.
