"The details and moods that Marlayne captures in her images recall vividly for me timeless moments spent on the Maine coast, endless afternoons rock jumping and searching tidepools for sea critters, places where all the noises are natural. A calm and peacefulness is evoked whether it is a close-up or distant view. Absolutely beautiful work! I look forward to adding to/expanding my collection. "

"Where Nature and Art Become One"
We live in a crazy world where everyone is rushing from one thing to the next with no time to slow down and enjoy life. The subject of my photos are beauties of nature, areas of solitude, and settings that bring relaxation and peace of mind. It is my intent to bring peace and relaxation into your life by combining and bringing these 3 definitions into each of my photographs,
Nature: "Natural Scenery - The inherent character of a thing: Essence - A spontantous attitude"
Beauty: "The quality or aggregate of qualities in a thing that gives pleasure to the senses or
pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit"
Art: "Decorative or illustrative elements in printed matter"
The photos I choose to share with you here are the ones that I find most peaceful. Such as the feeling I get while walking along the coast or through a meadow. That feeling of calmness, serenity and reflection on life, all of which help to restore my energy and refocus my mind.
My hope is for you to experience these same feelings when you see my images. To invoke the desire in you to bring these feelings into your home through my art. I hope your enjoy your visit!
