I have always enjoyed expressing myself through art. My interests include photography in addition to acrylic and oil painting. Although I began college as an art major, I transferred to nursing and spent my working career as a nurse and medical case manager.

Since 1997, Maine has been my artistic inspiration. During the summer months, my husband and I sail coastal Maine and explore its islands and harbors aboard our yawl, the Carol Lyn. I take hundreds of photographs of the activity on the water, as well as the natural solitude and changing weather of coastal Maine. These photographs stand alone, but they are also the basis for paintings which occupy much of my time during the winter months. Photography and painting give me an opportunity to share the amazing beauty of coastal Maine’s villages, islands, small coves and classic sail boats with “those who live here and those who wish they did.”
