The Art Issue Cover

As some of you may be aware, I relocated to Maine from Arizona just about a decade ago. Ever since I moved here I have fallen in love with the state for many reasons. Of course there are the obvious reasons like its natural beauty and the fact that there is always a new dining option to explore. But one of the other reasons I love this state is its thriving art scene. I have been fortunate to photograph many talented artists that excel at what they do such as Robert Indiana, John Bisbee and Alan Magee to name a few. When I got the call for this assignment I was excited to learn that this time we would be photographing Donna Mcniel who is the former director of the Maine Arts Commission and a long time arts advocate.

To learn more about Donna we invite you to have a look at the Art Issue of Maine Home + Design on newsstands throughout April.

American Craft Magazine - Artist Roberto Lugo

In our line of work we have the opportunity of meeting many talented, creative and amazing individuals. Photographing Artist Roberto Lugo was certainly a treat. His passion for his craft is undeniable and extends beyond the simplicity of creating beautiful ceramic objects. He uses his vision to shed light on issues such as poverty, race, inequality and the human experience in general. By doing so his pieces transcend what simply meets the eye and allow us to peer into Lugo's personality and upbringing.

To learn more about Roberto Lugo check out the April/May issue of American Craft Magazine published by the American Craft Council.
