This site was created to introduce artwork that focuses on telling a story about a person, place, or object. I began this work after finding hundreds of old photographs of our family,friends and neighbors in the very small town that I grew up in on the coast of Maine. As I sorted through the photographs I realized that there were some very rich and interesting narratives that could be told through my artwork. This was the beginning of a series called “Hometown Memories”.
This site will include stories about individuals, places and a way of life that has gone by in this generation. It will include photos of the completed works, some of the photographs I have used for inspiration, ideas on ways you too can make this kind of art and samples from classes I teach on this subject.
I do this work and share it through our Historical Society, our Library and a local Arts Center. The work is available online and through a local gallery. This site will introduce these places and talk about working with various individuals and organizations can enrich a project and it’s outcome.
Please join me for more on this subject, Carol
