Original Paintings, Framed Prints, Custom Prints, Books and Posters

Brenda’s favorite paintings are your family recipes because of the many wonderful stories that come with them. When she illustrates a recipe for a client, she tries to identify what’s most important to the family in order to paint it in a personal way. For example, on the website, you’ll see several apple pie paintings all illustrated very differently for each family. She also continues to introduce recipe paintings that everyone remembers and enjoys. Living in Maine there is an endless supply of favorite recipes from childhood recipes to foods our tourists most enjoy.
