"Pare down to the essence but don't lose the poetry"
"My art and palette evoke the natural beauty of coastal New England, the ocean, the beaches and wildlife are my constant inspiration. I strive to pare down and find the essence of my subject matter by abstracting shapes and exaggerating color.
My favorite quote is "Pare down to the essence but don't lose the poetry". To me straddling the edge of realism and abstraction is the most exciting and challenging aspect of my art." - Phyllis Dobbyn Adams
