Hello and welcome to my Web Store. If you have had the opportunity to visit my Studio/Gallery in Freeport Maine then you know my passion for design and color. My journey through life started on the beautiful Island of Nantucket. My current home with my wife Valerie and our two children is on the coast of Maine (The Way Life Should Be).  I named my Gallery “ACK ME ARTS” to pay homage to my Nantucket  roots and  my adoptive home of Maine. Just 2 miles from the Iconic LL Bean Flagship store in Freeport on the way to Wolfe’s Neck State Park you will find me in my gallery, painting Big Bold Colorful coastal inspired paintings. Living in Vacationland,  I enjoy meeting visitors as much as I enjoy creating art. People come in from all over the world and I am always interested in how they found their way to my roadside gallery. I feel blessed every time someone makes a purchase because they are not just buying art they are buying part of me, art that I created. It’s a pretty cool feeling. My main gig is my Original Paintings. From those I make Prints, Cards, Stickers, Flour Sack Towels , shirts, hats, etc and I am always looking to expand my offerings. I want my art to be available to all who love it. Bottom line is I want to bring Color to your Life, a Smile to your Face and Joy to your Heart.  If you would like to see my paintings, please go to ACKMEARTS.COM ,Follow ACK ME ARTS on Instagram & FB or stop by the gallery the next time you are in Maine. To my regular customers Thank you, Thank you ,Thank you, for your support over the years. And to my  new customers I say, Welcome and I look forward to becoming friends.
