Greetings and welcome.

Photographer, painter, author and designer, I’ve been a full-time studio artist for nearly thirty years: Making images, creating work for other people, leading workshops, receiving commissions, licensing work for publication, and designing books. Years ago, I created This Playground as a space to explore ideas about design, creativity, and teaching art. So much of this led to my ideas for PhotoPlay, (published by Chronicle Books, March 2014), the first-of-its-kind photo-based prompt book, of which 10,000 copies sold worldwide. In October 2015, PhotoPlay was reprinted in the Netherlands: Het Enige Echte Fotodoodleboek Voor Kids.

An art educator and creator of ArtLab for All Ages, a hands-on program at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, I’m also an insatiable traveler: In 2014 I began to work for Celebrity Cruises, designing itinerary-based projects to teach creative watercolor painting aboard the ships.

Known for my unique painted images and my work with the photographic negative, my art is exhibited, published, commissioned, and collected around the world.

Since 1996, I’ve lived and worked in a reconstructed barn on the coast of Maine.
