"I moved to Maine over 20 years ago because Maine scenery/buildings/old objects are my inspiration for painting. I lived for way too long in Oklahoma and missed tremendously the scenery I had grown up with. I graduated from college with a fine arts degree, and proceeded to hone my skills in watercolor from then on. For many years I had to satisfy need for Maine scenery by taking pictures on my brief vacations back to Maine. Now that I live here full time, I’m probably a danger to other drivers on the road, because I am constantly on the look-out for my next inspiration!"
