Art is a way of life for me. I pursue art in a variety of ways. One of my passions in the past 13 years, living and loving Kittery, has been to develop art through photography while kayaking. I enjoy photographing Maine's beauty and in doing so I have learned to respect the life of our hard-working lobstermen. Having taught elementary school art for 25 years while also being an artist in residence at the Brush Art Gallery in Lowell, Mass., I became director of the youth outreach program for the city while participating in the Citizens Schools Project. I came to realize the enormous benefits of community interest and involvement when its citizens learn something valuable about their own community. From my vantage point on the water in Kittery photographing lobstermen at work, I discovered that while lobstering is difficult, it can be experienced as a particular art form. Each lobsterman has honed his skills with an individual style and technique. Bringing my homemade cookies in a dry sack while kayaking and offering them to the lobstermen I learned that each one of them has his own unique story, representing his own way of life. The real story of Kittery's local lobstermen is one to be shared with our community.
