Marlayne Brace's Profile

About

I grew up in a small, rural town in New England where as kids, we would hop on our bikes and ride from friends house to friends house. We would come home from school and run out the door to play with the neighborhood kids until we heard our Mom's call "Dinner!". We would get down on our hands and knees to watch an ant at work or a toad hopping along. We would notice the toadstool under the bushes and create a story around it.

In today's very busy world, we are all running around like crazy but rarely do we have the chance to stop, look, listen, and feel the natural world around us.

Testimonial:
When I first laid eyes on Marlayne's photographs I knew instantly I was witnessing some- thing special...an ability to capture a feeling that taps into your inner soul...the rare times we stop and find ourselves in a moment when we open our hearts to the deeper meaning of nature and beauty. There is a pureness in composition, color, and subject that gives us, the viewers, an opportunity to connect with nature, beauty and ourselves. I feel so fortunate to have one of her photographs on my office wall where, at a glance, I can be transported.

- J. James, Rockport, Maine

"The details and moods that Marlayne captures in her images recall vividly for me timeless moments spent on the Maine coast, endless afternoons rock jumping and searching tidepools for sea critters, places where all the noises are natural. A calm and peacefulness is evoked whether it is a close-up or distant view. Absolutely beautiful work! I look forward to adding to/expanding my collection. "
