She then owned and managed her own successful graphic design business.

Her work ranges from abstract to representational, currently with an emphasis on garden imagery.

    William Royall – Bill Royall has worked in stone for over 40 years. Bill was inspired by the unusual rock formations of the Western Rockies.

    Lynne and John Seitzer - Lynne and John continue to paint and enjoy the creative process and beauty of Maine. They offer the intention of love, light and peace through their work. Their two dimensional works of art are multidimensional influences of joy, color, vibration and light, offered in a manner to awaken both your cellular memory and the playful child within.

    Tony van Hasselt - Tony van Hasselt, A.W.S. loves to paint a plein air and watercolor is his favorite medium. Living in Maine, its coastline offers an infinite source of inspiration and subject material, while teaching assignments and travels give him the opportunity to explore and paint other exciting areas of the globe.

    Tony grew up in The Netherlands and worked in display and graphic design prior to arrival in the U.S. While attending art school in New York, he organized world-wide workshops taught by artists whose paintings he admired. Several of his idols became his mentors and friends in art. Elected to signature membership in the American Watercolor Society, van Hasselt's paintings and articles have been featured in major art magazines and instruction books. Tony has written "A Studio Visit" and "Outdoor Watercolor Workshop." He is the co-author of "Painting with the White of your Paper" as well as the popular "Watercolor Fix-it Book."  He has produced several DVDs on painting in watercolor.
