Original artwork painted by hand on an old barn board is unique and evokes a happy, sunshine-y feeling. That's just about as quintessential as it gets for a gallery like ours on the Midcoast.

Fresh pastel and neon colors give pop to the chubby, cheerful animals depicted in the artist's signature style.

Bevin Strider Holmberg of Mermaid Meadow in Falmouth, Maine, wanted to be a marine biologist when she was grew up! She continues to grow, and her dream is evolving toward being an artist activist in the most gentle and sweet way. Hosting fundraisers to support some of her favorite animal organizations, Bevin works to raise awareness and keep these special ocean creatures top of mind.

She obtained a B.F.A. in Studio Art from James Madison University and holds a Master of Education in Art from the University of Minnesota. As a nod to her family's roots, Bevin finished her masters program with summer study at Säterglänten Institute for Slöjd (traditional handicrafts) in Insjön and Stockholm, Sweden.  

While in Minnesota, she lived and participated in the Tilsner Artist Cooperative in St. Paul, worked as a sign painter, and taught drawing lessons to elementary-age students. Locals will recognize her work at the Trader Joe's in Portland and on banners in the Old Port. 

"I moved to the beautiful state of Maine (2010), and as an artist, was inspired by its rustic charm. I started painting on old boards from barns that had fallen under disrepair and lost their use. I love painting on the wood because each piece is unique and adds a layer of texture and history."
