Through the years, I developed a love, appreciation and spiritual connection to the Maine landscape. Nature gives me inspiration and balance. It is at the core of my art as a visual artist who exhibits regularly. Growing up I was connected to the outdoors by family activities. I have done the same with my children. As former board President of the Trust, I aspire to conserve the landscape for all living on the Peninsula now and in the future. I want to protect the natural habitat for our health and for the presence of wildlife. Our landscape is our common ground.
