I’m a lifelong Lynn resident who has been retired from GE for about 11 years. While at GE, I was an apprentice course graduate and later I held a number of positions including toolmaker, drafting, and tool design.
I was always interested in art, so upon retiring, I thought I’d take it up. I had the very good fortune to meet Pauline Bacon who became my teacher and mentor. When she passed away, I took over her Lynn and Lynnfield art classes. For me, teaching has been a great experience. I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way, and truthfully, I’ve learned a lot more from them than they have from me.
I get my inspiration from the places I’ve travelled and from living in New England. I paint almost exclusively in watercolor in formats that aren’t too large. I sell my work at various shows and at the Tides Restaurant in Nahant.
