“Sparkle- with repose,” was the way John Constable, the renown English landscape artist, described the emotional and visual effect he wanted to achieve in his painting.
These are the qualities I’ve hoped to create in my watercolors and oils. The watercolors are lively and jazzy, with bold, strong design, and the oils blend traditional realism with an undercurrent of something more modern.
People often mention a feeling of serenity in my paintings. May you feel that too, while enjoying the sparkle.
Please click on one of the images, in the upper right of this page, to access the slideshow of some of my work. In my slideshow you'll see "Jen-Daloz Mill" which is the cover painting for the September/October issue of "Monadnock Table". The last painting in the slideshow -- "MacIntosh" also appears in that issue.
Art Education: I grew up in a family of artists. My paternal grandfather was Gifford Beal, whose American Impressionist work is at the Met. My maternal grandfather was Stow Wengenroth, and his lithographs are in the Modern.
I also studied with Roger Martin, who was a founding faculty member of the Montserrat School of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. And I studied with Betty Lou Schlemm, AWS, in Rockport, Massachusetts.
Galleries, Shows: I’ve exhibited and sold paintings as part of the Monadnock Arts/Friends of the Dublin (NH) Art Colony open studio tour, and I had a one person show in the Daniels Gallery in the Hancock, NH Town Library. Previously I exhibited my work at the General Mills headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Recently I’ve also sold commissioned portraiture. This year, "Light" was accepted into the Thorne-Sagendorph biennial exhibit.
Currently my paintings are selling at the Sharon Arts Center fine arts gallery in Peterborough, NH. You may also visit my studio -- please call for an appointment
