Majestic Lighthouse Art

Purposeful and Playful

"Purposeful and Playful" that's how my

art was characterized at the

"Voices of Lighthouses" Exhibit at the Lilac Preservation Project in Manhattan,

New York. 

 

I promote the preservation of lighthouses in a playful manner through my art. Preserving and painting lighthouses is my passion. 

 

My love of lighthouses has not only transformed the way I travel, but the way I live. When I am not traveling to a lighthouse, I am often writing about or painting lighthouses.
 

I have painted lighthouses in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New England, lNew York, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. My favorite memories are of this lightship in London, which is converted into a music studio and an abandoned lighthouse on the campus of New Orleans University.

Lighthouses as Inspiration
 

 

Cutting Edge Exhibit in St. Augustine is through February 2

The War on Art

 

Art Censorship by a government is nothing new. The recent uproar over the National Archives censorship of 2017 Women’s March photo is a familiar page from history. 

 

The painting, L’ Art Degenere d’phare (Lighthouse Degenerate Art) honors the contemporary artists who works were banned by the Nazis of World War II and displayed in the Degenerate Art Exhibit. The works of art were formerly exhibited in German Museums. 

 

The painting, L’ Art Degenere d’phare of the Crooked River Lighthouse, is part of the juried “Cutting Edge” exhibit at the St. Augustine Art Association. It is on display through February 2. 

 

My lighthouse paintings are created through the lens of history and each lighthouse’s environment. The cubist rendition of the Crooked River Lighthouse challenges traditional perceptions of lighthouses. 

 

The Crooked River Lighthouse overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and is situated next to Camp Jordan Museum. Amphibious soldiers of World War II were trained at Camp Jordan.
