Mostly, I take the pictures I want to see.

I was brought up to revere the pre-revisionist history and 19th and 20th century landscape artists that formed Americans’ notions of the character of my native New England, and how it ought to look. I now work to synthesize those stories and influences with the effects of time, economic violence, and the human longing for order and beauty.

Beauty without sentimentality is a goal of all my work. 

B. 1956, raised Portsmouth, NH.
