I am a painter who has lived and worked in Providence, Rhode Island for the past forty-one years. I received my BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1971 and my MFA in 1973. My paintings have been in the form of two series: one of self-portraits and the other of landscapes, both interior and exterior, which act as secular altarpieces. Having fixed subjects has allowed me to submit one vision fully to time, light and mood so that there is a scientific as well as spiritual, element.
