I’ve received several emails asking who painted the images that we use for the covers of the Lumby novels. That would be none other than Art Poulin, my husband. Some background: Art, a single father of four, supported his country for 27 years of active duty as a tenor in the US Army chorus, during which time he had the honor to meet and sing for six presidents, numerous world dignitaries and entertainment personalities in such venues as the White House and Radio City Music Hall. He is also a serious pianist (having played at the Kennedy Center) and a classical music lover.
After retiring as a professional musician in 1998, which is around the time Art and I married, he turned his talents to painting. As an award-winning artist, he offers canvases of inviting landscapes that blend his love of America’s simplicity with a deep appreciation and knowledge of twentieth century architecture. His artwork is licensed internationally, and his puzzles, home and paper products can be found in department stores, bookstores, and “big box” retailers across the country. When not painting, he is at the piano. When not playing, he is in the garden tending his flowers.
