Nina Jerome, an artist from Maine with a keen eye for catching what I would assume would be a relatively difficult subject… Waterfalls! Nina spent a month in Iceland painting – Iceland has always fascinated me. It is an artist’s dream, also a photographer’s dream – the beauty is awe-inspiring to say the least. Nina stayed in an apartment above a small museum and she created stunning paintings and sketches.
I read a bit about the Seljalandfoss waterfall… fascinating!
Nina is also well known for her Maine paintings which are breathtaking!!

Read a bit about Nina, from her website:
A graduate of Mount Holyoke College and Rhode Island School of Design, Nina Jerome has been painting landscape in Maine for over thirty years. Concentrated light, panoramic rhythms, varied points of view and active brush strokes convey her interest in unique qualities of place in both natural and constructed environments.
Jerome has recently retired from teaching drawing and painting at the University of Maine in Orono where she was a member of the faculty for over 25 years. She exhibits throughout Maine, and her work as been shown in many regional and national juried shows. Currently she shows her work in Maine at Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth, The Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle, The Gallery at Somes Sound in Mt. Desert, and George Marshall Store Gallery in York. Her paintings have been selected for fourteen public art projects through the Maine Arts Commission Percent for Art Program, including six large-scale triptychs at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor.
