I love animals and their relationship to us and to each other. The images I paint and sculpt come from experiences I've had right here in our backyard and in East Blue Hill.

I am surrounded by woods and live beside an old granite quarry. A sheltered cove and the head of Blue Hill Bay is at our doorstep. I am visited regularly by deer, fox, crows, raccoons, and occasionally a bobcat, bear, hawk and owls.

All manner of creatures come to see what our chickens and geese have left from their supper.

Some of the animals have also been wonderful models for my workshops with children and adults. They seem to be the best motivators for teaching techniques in drawing and painting.
