“I’ve been going to Fort Foster in Kittery Point since I was a baby; spending at least one summer day a year wading in the water and enjoying the company of my family during our (mostly) annual reunions. Lobster rolls, whoopie pies, crabbing off the pier, exploring the forts, hunting for sand dollars, and a fiercely competitive cribbage tournament – these are the memories of my family at Fort Foster. 

When I was a kid, I seriously thought I might literally fall through the cracks of the pier, the boards felt so far apart. As an adult, that fear is gone, but the memory remains. Walking this massive wooden structure that extends prominently into the Piscataqua River, one can gaze out to the Isles of Shoals or across the river to New Hampshire, watching sailboats glide by in the breeze, and listening to the sounds of sea birds on the lookout for their next meal. Just off the pier, Wood Island Life Saving Station was once used as a base to save the lives of mariners in distress for more than a century. A little further in the distance sits Whaleback Light, marking the mouth of the Piscataqua River. With these lovely views and depth of history, Fort Foster truly holds a special place in my heart.”

 

This graphic artwork is loosely inspired by the vintage "See America" posters. I work in layers painting blocks of color similar to a block print or silkscreen process. My work typically includes anywhere from 150-200 layers of flat shapes of color that are built one on top of the other to create a larger object within the piece.
