My name is Barbaralyn Walen and I am a Maine native, currently living in the woods of Northern Maine. (North of Katahdin Mountain.) I grew up at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in a town called Kingfield in the western part of the state. I also spent about 18 summers living on the coast in Bar Harbor working in fast paced restaraunts as well as a flower shop. Flowers and the creativity led me to buy the floral buisiness I worked for which I ran for about 5 years providing flowers for weddings at Oceanside Properties. In the end of 2014 I met someone, fell in love and moved north to be with him and his three children. In the last 8 years the isolation of the woods has inspired and relinquished my love of art. With no neighbors, fifty acres of quiet and wildlife, solor panels and woodstove heat only, time slowed down and really allowed for reflection in my life. Painting has been a way to express my inner voice and translate some of my experience and surroundings to paper. Most of my work incorporates birds, flowers, trees and the places I have lived.
