Candace writes about herself:
As a child growing up in Connecticut, I always liked to draw pictures and later, to paint, as I watched my father painting for a hobby. Hence, when my husband and I moved our family to Sherman in 1974, I continued to paint, to draw and to do crafts.
In 1986, I attended the University of Maine, Orono to become certified as a Maine art teacher. The art history, drawing, sculpting, and painting classes stretched and challenged my approach to art. I have taught art (but am now retired) at Katahdin Middle/High School, MSAD#25 since 1988 as the district art teacher. It was a rewarding and exciting way to involve children in creating personal expressions in school.
Mt. Katahdin has had a constant attraction as an inspiration in my art. I find it fascinating and alluring and fresh every time I decide to paint it. It is a challenge to climb and to paint and, although I have only climbed Katahdin six times, I have painted it over a hundred times in the last 33 years or so. It is mysterious and enticing, beautiful and forbidding and always calling to me.
Within the next week there will be more of Candace's works on her page. Stay tuned...
