A Cape Cod Artist

Based in Chatham, the elbow of Cape Cod, I'm constantly inspired, as an artist to paint the natural beauty that surrounds me...the ocean, sand and shadings of the sky...the vividness of the natural light, have influenced much of my  work. Meeting well-known Cape artists like Henry Hensche, Edmund Oppenheim and Wallace Bassford, inspired my interest in pursuing the life of an artist. The Rhode Island School of Design Museum was a magical place to visit when I lived in RI, as a teenager. Later, studying privately with Robert Driscoll, an internationally known artist, here and in Palm Beach, FL, continued to motivate me and I started working in a Realistic Impressionistic style, mainly focusing on seascape and garden scenes of Cape Cod...I know it will be a lifetime of experimentation and growth and that challenge makes me happy!

An Award Winning Gallery...Palette Fine Art Gallery--Sandwich, MA

A great destination while visiting Cape Cod, would be the Palette Fine Art Gallery, in historic Sandwich...First Exit On/Last Exist Off. The gallery, in business for a little over a year, has recently been given the Silver Award for "Best Art Gallery" on the Upper Cape, by "Cape Cod Life Magazine", in their "Best of 2015" issue.

The gallery is a charming reflection of the owner's charismatic personality...a multi talented musician, artist and performer, he wanted to leave the hectic lifestyle of touring behind and was drawn back to the beauty and serenity of the Cape, where he'd summered while growing up. Still writing and recording music for TV and Film, he paints as well and exhibits his work along with the artists he has carefully chosen to be part of the gallery.

Chris's hit song, "All Because of You" was featured on the popular TV show, "Dawson's Creek". A special touch at the gallery, is an autographed Bruce Springsteen guitar, given to him by "Billboard Magazine".

Visit this fun'll feel comfortable viewing beautifully displayed artwork...and stop for lunch or coffee a few steps away, at another award winning spot, Cafe Chew...
