Maria Charette is a Bernard resident and has a background in fine arts painting and printmaking. She is currently an ed-tech at Mount Desert Island High School and has a background in museums, working with collections and exhibitions. She paints local scenes in oils.
Janet Elvidge grew up on MDI where her love of nature and art started early in a house of artists. Janet found art to be a way to express and fully absorb the light, textures, and patterns of nature and continues to explore all that nature evokes using a variety of mediums including oil, gouache, and cold wax. She has a Master of Library Science degree and has been involved with libraries for over 30 years. She is the school librarian at the Indian Island School for the Penobscot Nation on Indian Island, Maine.
