Item Description

"Squid Rider"- When I saw the buoy it immediately reminded me of a squid - I worked in collaboration with cousin Dan West, a master sculptor who is represented by the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland. I found the tiny squid rider and thought it would be perfect. Kind of like Ahab and the White Whale. We had fun with this project, particularly as it was transforming from a buoy to a squid!


I am a process artist who works primarily as a sculptor, although recently I've started oil painting again. I moved to Maine last July from Martha's Vineyard where most of my creative work was involved with the making of videos that related to water issues on the island. I'm just now opening my own gallery, The Sinclair Gallery at 172 Bristol Rd. in Damariscotta. I'm part of a consortium of four artists who are neighbors and who all have galleries - we are called "The Bristol Road Galleries". My sculpture of animal art can be seen at the Ducktrap Bay Trading Co. on Main Street in Camden, and my oils at the Pemaquid Artist Group Gallery across from the lighthouse in Bristol.
