MISSION

As an artist my mission is to create images using a straight forward approach which can

be viewed in my latest paintings. A spontaneous reaction to what I see without manipulation.

I want my work to express my reactions and interpretations of the subjects that are built up from

within. As a result the viewer is presented with the reality of the image developing a sense of place. 

My latest series of paintings are created using photographs I have made in Italy over the past

several years. Images and manipulation of space have been used in earlier works.

One of my goals is to continue creating documentaries and telling stories that include historical

information about the people and places I document by going on location and interviewing subjects. 

An important part of the projects is  sharing the images and the information collected with the public.

This is done through photo exhibitions, video, public television, and in archival collections at various

locations. Part of my documentary work has been extended to the television series on Rhode Island PBS

titled “Harvesting Rhode Island”. The films and some of the photographs can be viewed on this website.
