Theresa Curtis | Artist

Painting has always been a passion of mine, and since retiring from teaching I have enjoyed developing my style full time. Living on the North Shore has been an inspiration to me, and I enjoy painting scenes from my photographs of local landscapes. It brings me such pleasure to interpret the beauty in nature through experimentation with color and texture.


Lisa Boemer | Artist

Lisa Boemer is a visual artist who resides on the North Shore of Boston and enjoys painting land/seascapes and incorporates impressionist style and techniques directly on paper NOAA navigational charts as well as traditional canvases and panels. She also enjoys creating intuitive, abstract expressive paintings using cold wax and oil.


Jocelyn Cook | Gardener

What began as a little project to remove invasive plant material from our new to us home in 2022, has blossomed into a passion for growing cut flowers, love of flower arranging and creating thoughtfully designed native habitats for critical pollinators.

This will be my second year working to overhaul our yard, expanding my gardens, beginning to transform our backyard and replacing additional grass with shrubs and flowers.

Pending Mother Nature's blessing, this year I'll have close to 250 dahlias in my front yard, 145 native plants, 22 peonies, 6 roses, 2,000 cut flower annuals and 13 varieties of edible flowers and plants for inclusion as design elements in my arrangements. I follow nontoxic garden practices and love the connections made in the community through a shared love of gardening.
