Born and educated in Michigan, I began painting and photography at the age of twelve. Although I first majored in Art in college, I ultimately graduated with honors from St. Joseph's School of Nursing in 1970. I then worked as a Registered Nurse and raised my family before moving to Maine in 1997 where I was inspired to devote myself to both photography and painting.
As I am fortunate to spend most of my summer on our yawl, the "Carol Lyn", I photograph the magnificent Maine coast with its villages, islands, harbors, coves and classic sailing yachts from the deck of the boat. These inspirational photographs feed my passion to paint during the winter.
My objective is to share my privileged visual experiences and love of painting and photography with those who live in Maine and those who wish they did.
