Chosen as Artist in Residence, Acadia National Park

June 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I feel privileged, honored to be here.  I join a long line of artists who have practiced their craft in honor of our National Parks.  I am at the Schoodic Education and Research Center (SERC), the teaching arm of Acadia National Park.  When chosen to be the Artist in Residence here, I chose the month of June in order to be here for the changing weather of spring. Acadia National Park is most known for it's Mount Desert Island location near Bar Harbor.  The Schoodic Peninsula, where I am housed, is about and hour downeast.  Schoodic is quintessential Maine; surrounded by Frenchman Bay, with lobster boats, rocky harbors that disappear at low tide, and many islands near and far.

Join me on this journey, follow my blog for updates. I will be out "Chasing the Light" often.  The residency affords me the time to fully explore the coast, the forests, and take part in lots of activities at the Schoodic Institute and Acadia National Park.
