Here is my current show, hanging at the York Hospital Cafe through November 2023. All the artworks are listed individually below. Just scroll down to view them. The Cafe at York Hospital is actually a nice place to eat; good food and a nice feeling. The Cafe has a new show of local artworks every couple of months. Check here for more information. And York Hospital in general has a wonderful art collection, so I am very proud to be in good company.
If you’d like to purchase any of these, email me or call me: 207-439-1717.
All of these pieces are framed, most of them watercolors.

Appledore Tower with Tardigrades
5 x 7, watercolor with embedded dormant tardigrades
This painting includes tiny dormant animals called tardigrades mixed in with the paint. I harvested them from the orange lichen on the tower on Appledore Island at the Isles of Shoals. I did the painting en plein air while Artist-in-Residence at Shoals Marine Lab. Tardigrades are famous for being tremendously resilient. The ones in this painting can be expect to remain dormant but still alive for 100 years or more.
Thanks for looking at the York Hospital show! If you’d like to learn more about my work and how it has developed, read the text of a talk I gave at the York Public Library.
