  I am a Wellfleet resident, artist and designer and have been painting and making things almost all my life. After closing Gallery 5 and down-sizing four years ago, I conceptualized a web store that would combine my entrepreneurial experience with creative output. reaches new customers and collectors familiar with my work and painting style, catering to appreciative people who enjoy the ease of on-line shopping. I belong to the Wellfleet Chamber of Commerce and the Wellfleet Art Gallery Association, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and I am an exhibiting member of Viridian Contemporary Art Gallery, W. 28th Street, Chelsea, New York.
There are five collections in the store as well as custom work information.
