Who am I? My family comes to mind first! I am very happily married to my best friend, Wade, and am the proud Mom of three teenage sons. I grew up in the wonderfully expansive Allen clan of the Oxford Hills region of Maine and attended the University of Southern Maine's Fine Arts Program. We've lived all over; Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska and have now returned home to beautiful Maine! I enjoy reading, drawing, painting, gardening and so much more!
I've always been an Artist/ Illustrator , strictly free-lance and sometimes unpaid, but very willing! You can find my portraits on walls all over the U.S., T-shirt designs on teenagers at various campsites, and my paintings, posters, illustrations and cards in many homes, libraries and churches.
My boys are older now and have flown the nest so it's my time to be more prolific! Enjoy!
