Why did you choose Portland? Because of Portland's big city advantages in art, entertainment and restaurants with nature close by and small town friendliness.
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Holly Seeliger for her work in the community and work as a member of the school board.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Take them to all our favorite places here. J's Oyster Bar is probably most requested by return guests.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Eastern Prom.
What's the most surprising thing about this city? How friendly everyone is!
What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Constellation Gallery houses members of the Maine Artists Collective, who work in a variety of genres. These are up and coming artists selling their work at a reasonable price.
Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Springboard Pilates!
My work is collected both locally and internationally. I've been educating art students in New England since the Millennium.
