When I sailed into Seal Cove on Mt. Desert Island, I had just completed an engineless passage from the Bahamas in my 30ft sailboat Argo. I had a mission, to use my skills as an artist to sustain myself. After working seasonally as a carpenter for years I met a couple, Ed Davis and Lisabeth Faulkner, who ran a seasonal ceramic studio and gallery on Mt. Desert Island Maine.
When they invited me to be their visiting artist, I sailed 1500 Miles to Maine where I dropped anchor in a picturesque cove on the quiet side of the island. It was here that I stared refining and focusing the skills I developed at MA College of Art and Design, as well as learning from Ed and Lisabeth. During my stay I did a run of 300 pieces. Some of my favorites are pictured here.
