Whitney studied fine art & ceramics at the University of Maine and has
continued to refine her craft through the guidance and support of many great
artists & local organizations. She currently works as manager of the Center
for Maine Craft in West Gardiner, a retail gallery operated by non-profit Maine
Crafts Association. Whitney is passionate about helping fellow Maine artists
establish connections and gain new skills to grow their creative businesses
through membership and active involvement in community organizations. In 2018
she purchased her first home in Bowdoin, Maine with the intent of creating a
shared workspace on the property. The garage is now a shared studio between
Whitney and mentor Mary Kay Spencer of The Potter’s House. Together they are
creating a workspace that functions as a production studio and showroom with an
outdoor space for small events.
Raised on her family’s 200-year-old farm in Western Maine, Whitney has always
admired the artist's way of life and the creative magic that can be found in
rural places. She strives to make her own creative contribution to the world
around her on a daily basis. In her free time Whitney enjoys playing
music, paddleboarding, gardening, and exploring the roads less traveled to
Maine’s woods, lakes and mountains with her spouse, dog, and two children.
