Landscapes are the subject of choice. Among my favorite locations for sketching and painting are the Merrimack Valley, the North Shore, and the Atlantic seacoast. Painting favorite places enables me to see them anew. I like to record my travels in watercolor as well. I enjoy working en plein air whenever possible. 
In the words of Keiko Tanabe: What often triggers me to paint is not really the subject itself; it’s an interesting pattern of light and dark, a subtle contrast, a reflection. I strive to capture a sense of time and place. Especially when I’m on location, I feel the place in all of my senses. I feel connected, as if I’m part of the scene. I don’t think I choose a subject; rather, it chooses me. I just have to be paying attention when it does. I think my painting is a mere response to that.
