This last year I illustrated my mom’s book “My Bring Up”, a memoir of her childhood growing up in the small town of Chelsea Vermont. Throughout the process my mom and I collaborated on the images I created. It was a whole new experience reading the stories and then having her describe her memories to me. The small details she remembers really brought the stories to life.
Last Friday at the White River Craft Center, in Randolph, VT I had my first solo gallery show! My 44 original watercolor and pen paintings will be hanging until February 8th.
I am Amy Hook-Therrien, a native Vermont artist living in Windsor, Vermont. I went to The University of Maine in Orono, where I received a BFA focusing in painting & sculpture. I met my husband in a painting class, and after we graduated I dragged him back to Vermont with me. We have two dogs Goose & Possum, they are both Australian Shepherd mix rescues. We also have two bunnies named Sprout & Sage.
