Just over a year ago, my family relocated from Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass., to a lakeside home and studio in southern New Jersey that is not quite as close to the seashore, but now affords me a large, airy studio on the water. 

Spending time at the water, whether harborside, at the beach, or on a boat, has always been important for my work.  Working with a water view is ideal.  I am a short drive to the ocean, rather than a quick walk, but the body of water my studio is on is a tributary and is endlessly interesting as far as light, reflection and movement.  Plus I’ve gained a high-ceiling, light-filled, generous studio space.  I couldn’t ask for more.
