Coast & Country where my traditional American art is offered as Home Decor and Gifts.
I focus my art on our American Heritage through the medium of watercolors.
Each painting tells a story of how we live and work and play. The things we built and how they were used.
Traditional values are a big part of my life.
Painting the historic ships and buildings I can't help but think on the nostalgia of those days.
On my journeys throughout the back roads and countrysides of this great country, I look for the people who are keeping old skills alive. I have always wanted to learn some of these skills myself.
The skills I put to work for our Coast & Country Gift Store are my watercolor painting skills and the Artisan skills of making Jewelry. I have also admired patch quilts and their beautiful designs, the Pennsylvania German Hex signs and even our historic American flags.
I think back on the Holidays of my youth and remember as a child the images of Christmas and the 4th of July. I remember my Dad planting his garden and seeing those old seed packs in his hands.
I am working on all these and so much more. I hope you will check in now and then to see what’s new from my studio.
