Hi everyone, as i said a few months back, I was going to be quite busy and not very good at posting anything about “milk farm road”. thanks for sticking with me here and if you have left us in the dust, I understand! A lot has been going on with my painting work and so I had to make some decisions on where I focused my energy. As things start to wind down, I am ready to make a […]

Hi everyone! It is feeling lovely and springy and the mode all around is so much more joyful with all the flowers in bloom and days at the beach!

A big thank you goes out to Daniela of her amazing photography, her bold and snowy journey to Portland for this shoot and her beautiful writing. She is incredible, a rare and unique individual that holds at the very least a force to be reckoned with, an inspiration to me without a doubt. The day she came to photograph me in the studio and look at my latest work was a day I will never forget. I was sort of […]

We had a lovely feature in Maine Home and Design Magazine this month (March issue) under the “shop talk” section. It was a great title introduction for me to the Portland community, but with one little catch, the studio is moving. We have loved our beautiful space at 26 Brackett street in Portland, Maine, but we are moving to a new space. We will be on High street in the State theater building on the 3rd floor, right in the […]
I just want to thank Robin and MArina for all their amazing talent and work on creating this feature for the gorgeous EST magazine based in Australia. The photographs are so true to the studio and the writing is heartfelt and honest. Thanks again to all of you!
