About the Artist
As a former television meteorologist in Portland and Boston, Ellen Thayer has been a Maine island adventurer for most of her life. Living on Casco Bay in South Portland affords frequent boating and kayaking excursions where Ellen finds limitless artistic inspiration and is particularly drawn to the mesmerizing colors of the sea resulting from fluctuations in light, weather, and the environment. Along with creating oil paintings and driftwood sculptures, Ellen uses other media such as shells, stones, and sea glass to create coastal inspired works of art which are sold through her website: maineislandtreasures.com Recognizing the significant character of Maine's islands, Ellen donates ten percent of sales to two organizations where she has been a long-standing member: The Maine Island Trail Association and Island Institute.
