Celeste Fleming
Bridgton, Maine

Art in some form has always been part of my identity. Whether it be clay, fiber or paint, I feel called to create. My undergraduate degree is in Psychology and Fine Arts. I pursued psychology in graduate school and as a career but always practiced some sort of art as an avocation. I explored fiber arts for many years and took classes in watercolor at local art centers near my home in N.J. I retired from my psychotherapy practice and my husband and I fulfilled our dream of moving to Maine where we had vacationed for over 30 years. I often paint en plein air as we hike the woodlands and mountains and paddle the lakes, soaking up inspiration. I am energized by the flow, unpredictability and challenge of watercolor. Experimentation and play are essential to my painting process. My work is rooted in the exploration of the external landscape and my own inner landscape. My work is in numerous private collections and is available at Gallery 302 in Bridgton, ME, Jackson Art Studio and Gallery in Jackson, NH and The Side Street Gallery in Searsport, ME. I am an Associate member of the New England Watercolor Society.
