PLT is deeply involved in saving the farms and open space in eastern Long Island. The collaboration of landscape artists with an organization that works to keep the land we paint from disappearing is synergy at its finest. My relationship with Peconic Land Trust was formalized in 2006 when I organized and founded Plein Air Peconic, a group of 10 plein air painters and 3 landscape photographers. The group acts as field ambassadors for the Trust. Besides in gallery shows, I have sold paintings in local shows in the Hamptons and Long Island as well as from my studio (including selling many paintings on location as I was working on them.) My work is represented in private collections in New York City, Westchester, the Hamptons, New Jersey, Tennessee, Boston, Atlanta, Las Vegas, South Carolina, Lexington and Louisville, KY, Los Angeles, Kansas, Palm Beach, Montreal and London. I am not currently represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Louvre.
