BIO & ARTIST STATEMENT BELOW
When Gretchen was a young child she received a Crayola Caddie—a three-tiered art supply organizer. The thrill of all those shades, hues, and possibilities was something only a budding artist could fully appreciate. In her extended family all forms of artistic expression were encouraged and supported. Gretchen grew up in an old farm house at the end of a dirt road in rural Maine where the weather and raw landscape were perfect for observing and exploring. She majored in art at Bates College and spent a semester at the Tyler School of Art in Rome. After spending some years as a graphic designer and as a full-time mom, art is now her full-time priority.
