I’m an artist happily living on the coast of Maine and doing what I’ve always loved to do…paint. Like many artists, I’m inspired by nature and my surroundings. I paint in mostly oil and some acrylic, using professional grade paints and brushes to create original works of art. I am constantly observing colors and compositions, and I find great beauty in “ordinary” objects and landscapes. I’m drawn to textures, interesting shapes, light and colors. I tend to either paint one or two objects up close (I love exploring the detail of a seemingly simple or overlooked object, such as a shell or a pile of beach rocks) or I enjoy painting landscapes and seascapes. I grew up along the Connecticut coastline and later lived in and around Boston, so I have seen, explored and closely observed coastal life and the four seasons for more than five decades. In addition to selling my work at various juried shows in Maine, I have a shop on Etsy (link included in my profile) I hope you enjoy my work and that you find something that speaks to you. I’m happy to answer any questions so don’t hesitate to message me. – Tricia
p.s. While fine art painting is my primary focus, I also create art using sea glass I have collected over many years along Maine’s beaches and island shores. During the Christmas season, I am busy creating a limited selection of handpainted or handmade ornaments. These items are sold through my second Etsy shop, “Coast to Cottage”, and through various seasonal craft shows. The link to my Coast to Cottage shop on Etsy is www.etsy.com/shop/coasttocottage.
