About Lobstering Is An Art


Lobstering in Maine goes back many generations and hundreds of years. The crustacean is a delicacy the world over, and they're living in my backyard. Born and raised in Maine I've been enjoying the sweet taste of lobster as far back as I can remember. My grandparents boiled up a dozen every time we visited the island house, something I looked forward to each summer. Now, my family looks forward to heading down to the same spot, having my kids grandparents boil up a few fresh lobsters from their traps 100 yards from shore. 
For the past few years, I have been living my dream as an artist, designer, illustrator, and entrepreneur. I have met thousands of people, hundreds of artists, networked with like minded folks and given as much as I can to organizations that hold meaning to me. I've worked and will continue to work with Maine Lobster associations and organizations to support and promote Maine's hard working and dedicated lobstering industry. The next time you're hungry, Buy ME Lobster!


Supporting local has been as important to me as advocating for Maine Lobstermen and Women. Over the years we've learned so much from so many, thank you to all who have supported me either in person, online, near and far, friends and strangers!

One of the best things I've discovered working on my own was the ability to give back and share my talents with organizations and charities I would have otherwise overlooked. My art is my contribution, I'm honored and thrilled to be giving back to my local community including being a vocal advocate for Maine Lobstering Men and Women.
