Washington artist Tania Amazeen-Jones is having a bit of a moment on the Midcoast: she has an exhibition running through Feb. 28 at the Camden National Bank branch in the Hannaford Plaza, Camden; and, starting Friday, Feb. 15, she will be featured for a month on the Art Wall of the Pope Memorial Humane Society in Thomaston.

Amazeen-Jones was raised on an island off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire and spent many hours in her father's boatyard and on boats, which instilled in her a great appreciation for all things of the sea. The family owned a small island farm, as well, giving her a love of woods, fields and wildlife.

Working in pen and ink, graphite, pastel and paintings, Amazeen-Jones has completed more than 1,000 works of art. The self-taught artist has been awarded many ribbons, and her work is in private collections across the United States and internationally.
