Canadaway Creek, Fall, Fredonia NY, Commissioned Work

Welcome Chautauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail visitors and National Park fans.

Over the past twenty years, I have been completing a series of Plein Air paintings that celebrate the beauty and history of local agricultural communities. Through these works I have sought to capture the unique geography, weather patterns, and natural resources of Western New York. Increasingly conservation and sustainability issues have become central to my work.
