I paint pictures and collect hobbies.

Job Painter

Lives In Riverton

I grew up in Mid-coast Maine, and after a while down in Boston I moved to Portland during the summer of 2013.  

I'm a painter, mostly with oils, as well as a printmaker and sometimes-sculptor.  

At the time I'm writing this I'm still just learning about all the great things to do in Portland, but I'm hoping to put down some roots here, and hopefully become accepted in the great arts culture.

Why did you choose Portland? I grew up in Maine, and have always wanted to move back, but I needed to be close to a vibrant arts and culture center.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I took a gifted and talented art class with Alan Bray when I was ten and have admired him since, he is a great painter.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Eat.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? I don't know a lot of places yet, but I love the Rosemont Bakery.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? There is a lot less traffic than Boston, and a lot more parking.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? The Great Lost Bear sometimes has poutine.
