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.
