Images starting from my teens to present spanning 1974 till present. These images represent my view of the Maritimes from my summer experiences growing up in Lubec Maine to my travels through Nova Scotia and Cape Breton and PEI after I lived in Halifax Nova Scotia for a time period. Images range from old slides restored to disposable camera shots manipulated in Fractel Painter to Nikon digital images stiched together in Photoshop to create the panoramas. As a musician, photographer, pen and ink artist living in Lubec Maine for summers since the early 70s, this represents my best of images over time that capture the essence of what the Maritimes is for me visually. No text or locations are given, the work is about the essence of the image and the combined feel of the work as a whole. For more images please visit the website at
