The Artist's Message
"Fortunately, at some point in my childhood, I began to gain an appreciation for the simpler belongings of life. I think now, a field trip to the McCarter Theater in Princeton, New Jersey, when I was 16, helped crystallize all the things I held so dear to my heart; that is, today, the core of my artistic sensibilities. The play was “Our Town”, which takes place in the fictitious town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, a town not unlike the one where I spent so much of my early years. The fictional town, and west Swansey, New Hampshire, the actual town, were both in the shadow of Mt. Monadnock, an old gentle mountain that I have climbed many times. The soul of both towns, to me, is the essential spirituality   behind all the images I have painted. It just can’t help but be."
