Jeanne O’Toole Hayman
A painter and printmaker for more than twenty years, I began developing my printmaking skills at the Mason Gross School of Innovative Printmaking at Rutgers University and have been honing them ever since.
As a member and past President of an artist run co-operative printmaking studio, The Peregrine Press in Portland, Maine I have participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions in Maine and elsewhere. Our portfolio of prints is in the collections of the New York Public Library, the Portland Museum of Art, The Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, and Colby, Bates and Bowdoin Colleges.
In printmaking and drawing my focus is solely on the figure, my favorite studio time is working directly from the model. When I am not making prints, I am painting landscapes and seascapes in oils. Stimulated by the amazing coastline and light in Maine I began painting the ancient rocks of the shoreline as soon as I arrived in 2001. Now I am working on interpretations of the water and sky and atmosphere that surround my island home.
