About The Artwork

This mixed media painting was inspired by a visit to the Calvert Maritime Museum on the Chesapeake Bay. These graceful boats are retired oyster boats that spent their days plying the waters of the bay. I was struck by the elegant sweep of these simple work boats and their worn surfaces, only visible now that they are out of the water and in a boat shed.

I was born in Munich, Germany and raised in Sioux City, Iowa. I moved to Staten Island, NY in 1982 and now reside in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, on the shores of Sandy Hook Bay. My mixed media paintings are inspired by the persistent beauty found where the natural world gets stressed by humanity. I find that beauty in the geometry and light in a boatyard, the lush tangles of plants against manmade structures, or in the topography of an oyster shell. I approach painting with the sensibility of the sculptor I once was, as though I am building the painting. I paint with acrylics and layer patterned or textured papers throughout with acrylic medium. I choose a deep wooden panel as a matrix, which creates more of a physical presence on a wall, and paint around all the sides, continuing the image and making it change slightly depending on the viewer's position.
