Lupine Cottage Artisan Helen Messemer Art
Meet Lupine Artist, Helen Messemer
All of my paintings in watercolor and oil portray the beauty of the seascapes, landscapes, flora and architecture of Maine. Each work is the reflection of a particular place. While hiking on Maines many trails one cannot help but be inspired. The light reflecting off countless waterfalls, streams, lakes and inlets bring countless depths of colors to light.
My studio, surrounded by sketches, studies and palettes, is filled with tables overflowing with brushes, tubes of paint, flowers in different stages of bloom, baskets of sands, shells and sweet grass, all treasures collected from beach sidewalks. Maine’s farmers and gardeners, small towns and villages provide beautiful scenery, flowers and architecture to pull from.
I have received over 38 awards in multiple mediums, exhibited cross the USA and abroad, and am a member of MaineMade with Bachelors in Painting, from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
