Our Founders: Three Wise Guys!
You don’t find a more unlikely trio than Holger Majorahn, Jennifer Stenberg and Anna-Maria Dickinson but they do have a few traits in common:
Together they’ve amassed 80-some years of painting.
They’re not old, but they are incredibly wise.
The three have an insatiable urge to paint.
Anything. Anytime. Anywhere.
They have an incurable phobia of empty walls and an annoying tendency to straighten pictures when they enter a room.
They’re nuts about their dogs.
They can survive without a regular pay cheque.
And last but definitely not least, there’s that mad, crazy love they have for the artists, musicians and normal people who have gravitated to this cultural mecca for decades.
a self-described Child of the Tropics, Anna-Maria has been known to paint the bold colours of her Caribbean life on one day and switch to the softer palette of Grey County the next. Her Island paintings take us up vibrant streets, steamy market places and along balmy beaches that tell stories of joy, love and the beauty of Island life. Her Grey County pieces capture the serene landscapes, rustic barns and the ancient contents of abandoned rural buildings.
