Welcome to my new site, Blue Jay Bay!
I’ve started this blog to share snippets of my creative pursuits. My interests include gardening, cooking, photography, and bird watching, plus I am currently focusing on watercolor painting techniques. In addition, I’ll occasionally take on an embroidery or sewing project. I like to dip my toes into many endeavors, and I have various unfinished projects… But that’s ok! I am a scientist by training, having studied and worked in the fields of botany, ecology, horticulture, molecular biology, forensic science, cartography, and geospatial sciences. I’m currently a stay-at-home mother to two sweet little girls.
I have chosen to name my creative blog Blue Jay Bay because I love the color blue, I think blue jays are beautiful, and I feel most peaceful when near the water. Plus it rhymes.
Here is a selection of water scenes I have photographed in and around Casco Bay in Maine, in no particular order. They are minimally processed – my editing is limited to contrast and color balancing.
