I am pleased to be part of the Salmagundi. As a member run club I am prepared to dedicate time and thought to helping and participating for the interests of all. I look forward to the opportunity to serve on the nominating committee to represent you and the SCNY to best of my ability. Iím a passionate painter, sculptor & writer known for my plein air landscapes and nautical works. Iíve won over 136 awards including the "Museum purchase award" of the Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea. As a top plein air competition painter (6 years at Plein Air Easton) I really enjoy the camaraderie, competition and creativity they inspire. Painting landscapes & seascapes I seek to capture the serenity or drama I perceive and the emotional and experiential atmosphere of that location. I look forward to helping the club serve the members even better and thrive.
