This is a mid-career artist whose work we found out West this summer. Although her landscapes are inspired by the West Coast, there was something about them that reminded us of Maine, or other craggy foggy East Coast areas.  Unsurprisingly, she has a local connection, having spent some time studying close to Boston.  We love the quiet serenity of the work.
