Year Purchased: 1910
About: At present I live in the house and spend my time as a professional artist. Having had various careers including Equestrian in Jumping, Dressage and Saddle Seat riding and breeding National Show Horses in Connecticut. I also have worked in several Paint Deptartments and run my own business in Color Consultation and design. I spent most of my years in CT and my children still live there. I visit occassionally but am in Maine year round and maintain my art studio here.
Why Camden, Camden, ME, USA:
This is a family homestead purchased by my Grandfather in 1910 just before he married my Grandmother. I moved into the house in 2000 and added the apartment in 2005. Origionally from Connecticut I have spent all of my childhood summers in Camden at this house. My Children also spent summers here and my Grandchildren visit when possible. I have loved this area all my life and now record it in watercolors which I show across the country in juried art shows.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When I added the apartment my design was intended to enhance the exsisting house and have it blend in to the original design. The house itself has not been changed since my Grandparents lived in it and is true to its time. I considered the warmth and quiet elegance something that I wished to maintain in the house and mirror in the apartment. Giving it warmth and solitude in tune with the era of the overall property. Yet close to a multitude of interesting sites to visit and enjoy.
