Though I have no degree in art, I come from an artistic background. My grandmother worked in watercolor and oils, and earned a listing in Davenport’s; she has works in the permanent collections of New York’s Metropolitan Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Library of Congress. From her I learned about color and line, solid and void, plane and perspective. My father, a biology professor and attendee at the Art Students’ League, worked in Higgins Inks and became a sought-after wildlife illustrator. He taught me how to use a camera, and the rudiments of darkroom work. My aunt’s canvasses were landscapes; she redesigned Manhattan’s Carl Schurz Park after Robert Moses’ FDR Drive project had devastated it; she taught me that art must be patient, and resilient. Together, they were the finest art faculty I could have asked for.
I trained as a physician. For thirty-five years in Vermont and on Cape Cod, I practiced country medicine, staffed the Emergency Room, and served as a Regional Medical Examiner. Photography and pencil sketching were a refuge from this stressful work, a place to stretch my restless artist’s legs, and a source of a sense of accomplishment quite different from the rewards of medicine and science. Art is a compulsion; while I never stopped doing it to reward myself, the demands of a hectic medical life precluded my participating in art shows or exhibitions.
As my medical career wound down, digital imaging and the internet emerged—a perfect storm for me. Now I work in digital images almost exclusively. I belong to the Cape Cod Art Association, the Provincetown Art Association, and the Duxbury Art Association. I have exhibited in these venues and others throughout Southeastern Massachusetts. I recently joined Studio Montclair, Inc., in New Jersey, and I have exhibited there, as well.
