Hanging With Art: Make Every Room Extraordinary

My work straddles the line between realism and the abstract. I strive to uplift the viewer with every canvas I paint. 

Dreams inform my Abstract work and my Magical Expressionism series, while the natural world inspires my Land and Moonscapes.

My work explores the quality of illumination as it relates to transformation and focuses on the cycles of nature.  I strive to capture the inner-light of my subject, which when reflected in the natural-world becomes magical.

Patterns are prevalent in my Magical Expressionism Series as I explore the way the Fibonacci Spiral informs the mysteries of transformation. My work has a spiritual quality which comes from celebrating the power of small things transforming into great beauty.

In short, my paintings serve as reminders that we live in a world of miraculous events everyday. 


For every original painting I write a personal essay for my clients. I love to paint and write, and when I put the two together the result is a special kind of art.

I'm available to paint commissions. Commissioned art makes beautiful and meaningful gifts for a loved one. Every commissioned painting comes with a story. 

If you are looking for a special kind of art for your own home you may find just the right piece in my gallery.

My artwork is for the collector who loves the beauty of the natural world and understands the way artwork not only transforms rooms and office spaces, but also how it has the ability to inspire, especially those who collect it. 



"We are not only pleased, we're THRILLED with the painting! You have everything to give in your art that people yearn for: beauty, gentleness, peace, joy, humor, wit.  We love the story that goes along with the painting and will tape it to the back. 

Thank you so much for all the beauty you give our world."

All the Best,

Jeannie and Peter Ferber,  New Hampshire


"We're SO happy to have your painting. I haven't figured out exactly where I'm going to hang it because my walls need to be painted. Your painting will be the inspiration for which wall color I choose :) Thank you!"

"Thank you for the beautiful painting. I will treasure it for years to come. It arrived in perfect condition."

For  a Commisioned Painting of Mount Everest  

 "I was just blown away when I saw the painting on Friday! The colors, the majestic feeling you get when you look at it, it's a beauty...I was pleased beyond expectations! My plan was to hide it until Father's Day. When I brought it home I just slipped the related essay in a drawer until I had time to read it. So yesterday I sat at my desk, read it, and decided I needed to give the painting to Mike at that moment. And it really was a wonderful surprise for him!

Mike is a hiker and similar to you he sees the mountains and hikes as a metaphor for life. He finds his zen, total relaxation and peace, no matter what is happening around him, atop a mountain. Your essay mirrored how he feels and sees his hikes. I thank you so much for not only the magnificent painting but almost even more so writing your thoughts as you painted. Let me tell you there were a lot of tears released as we sat and stared at your work..."

Susan Daigle, New Hampshire

Sue gave me the painting of Everest yesterday.  It is so appropriate and is so incredibly meaningful to me on so many levels.  I am honored one mountaineer painted it for another. 

Thank you.  

Mike Daigle, New Hampshire


The Print Arrived! It's a beauty! I so enjoy looking at your website and artwork...'talented' isn't adequate for describing your work. Your print is very special to me. Thank You!

 Food For Thought

When we started hanging the work for Jan H. Croteau’s show Food for Thought, people immediately began coming in and commenting on the festive looking fruits and vegetables. We also got excited about the titles and playful essays that went with Jan’s work. As we moved the artwork around in different placements on the wall, we even started laughing at our accidental jokes. “What if we sandwich the apples?” “I feel those two are going to sell as a pair.”

I think everyone who attended Jan’s show can agree; Jan’s work reflects a strong sense of playfulness, honesty, and gratitude for nature. Jan writes about her passion for gardening, art and life with her inspiring essays that accompany each piece. As an artist and writer, Jan sends off each painting with a gift of a story. This is what makes her work so unique and personal. You can immediately find words to connect to the artwork, even if you are not a regular gallery-goer.

I had a lot of fun reading some of these stories as I created tags for Jan’s work. One of my favorites was about her annual birthday request for artichokes for dinner! (I have an almost identical story myself!) Jan brings humor into her work through these short essays and sometimes even the title itself! A painting of grapes is laughingly called, “Not Even Enough to Make a Scant Teaspoon of Jelly”.

Jan also surprises her viewers (and readers) with some thought-provoking messages that you wouldn’t expect to find accompanying bright and lively still life paintings. The pear painting we used for our postcards comes with an essay where Jan quotes Ralph Waldo Emerson: “There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it’s perfect to eat.” Not only is this a painting that makes you pause to breathe in the dynamic colors and textures of the visual image, but also a piece that makes you stop to think about appreciating life itself and the precious quiet moments that Jan highlights in her writing.

From the first impact of these glowing paintings on the wall, to reading the poetic and inspiring stories that Jan has skillfully crafted, Food For Thought is a show you do not want to miss!
