Peaks Season

It all began with a newspaper article in the Portland Press Herald; Experience a Faison Artist Residency as part of Illustration Institute – The Stone House – Peaks Island, Maine. A one week+ stay in a stone house – an inspirational space for authors and artists.

I asked myself, “Really? Live on an island? for a week? Should I? Could I?”

Yes, I told myself. I could.”

My home away from home for one week; The Stone House. www.illustrationinstitute.org/

This wonderful unique house came complete with many well lit spaces in which to create, write, think, and reflect.

My creative inspiration was unleashed and came from many Island sources; blooming architecture, pastel floral vases, sunflower sheds, and a new found rodent friend named Chester!

Seven days of contemplation, consideration, and musings culminated in a Perfect Peaks Pop-Up Book Sale with Peaks Island resident, illustrator, & good friend, Jamie Hogan.http://www.jamiehogan.com

Boy oh Boy this Porcupine sure gets around!

All too quickly it was back home to enjoy the waning days of summer. Farewell, Peaks!

    I was honored to share my island with you! The Stone House is like a dream house, isn’t it?
