My style tends to be figurative with impressionistic touches, usually showing close up compositions with just enough detail to reveal the subject. I have concentrated on Maine–themed images and fresh fruits and vegetables because I like the idea of the life they represent.
If in town from November 9 to November 26 the work of Kevin Keiser, Brenden Roddy and Richard Winslow can be found at Pop Up on Maine Art Hill located at 5 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. The gallery is open at 10 am every day. An artist reception is being held Saturday, November 17 from 5-7pm. Please stop by and chat with the artists and see their work in person.
Brendan Roddy teaches Fine Art at the Middle School of the Kennebunks as well as courses at River Tree Arts. Roddy creates hand-built and wheel thrown ceramic work inspired by “all things water and ocean-related.” His work is both sculptural and functional, inspired by the movement, texture, and forms of the ocean.
Currently, Winslow does both painting and pottery and belong to several arts and crafts associations. He also participates in numerous shows in the Southern Maine area. His studio is in the lower level of his home where he also maintains an exhibit space.
As an artist, I am fascinated by the incredible variety of canine characteristics. Their differences in head shapes, body sizes, eyes, noses, jowls, ears, paws (not to mention facial expressions, temperament, and propensity for drooling) continually tickle and intrigue me.

My main motivation behind my work is making connections with people. I love to talk about my work and to hear how it may affect someone. I am a self-taught artist. I use wooden panels that I put together myself. When I am working on a piece I use multiple layers of paint.
Primarily, my work focuses on “treescapes” and the never-ending inspiration provided by Maine and New England forests—I liken my paintings as orchestrations of visual music, much like jazz which is different from more formalized concepts of music. My paintings are invented as they proceed, and as each portion of the composition comes forward on a moment by moment basis, the components are random and abstract, yet consciously orchestrated—the growth of a living forest works in much the same way.
Kristine’s paintings are a mix of realistic and whimsical, with a deep overlapping of colors, creating rich and vibrant works of art. Well placed patterns are used to guide the visual journey through the artwork and although no people are ever seen in her paintings there are hints of them throughout giving a sense of their strong and independent nature.
