Anchored to the Magnificent Chesapeake Bay

Artwork by Wesley Carter

Creativity was a language my family spoke fluently. My grandfather and mother were both amazing artists, and now my sister, niece and son, Kent Krebeck, are also all accomplished artists. I was always encouraged to try new mediums, to experiment and above all to enjoy the creative process.  My father was a Naval Academy graduate, aeronautical engineer and a brilliant inventor. He grew up in Annapolis on the Severn River and loved everything about the Chesapeake Bay and made sure it was an integral part of our lives.

Every family get-together revolved around the bay and crab feasts. Many days were spent floating on the rivers, sailing and racing on the Bay. Countless hours were devoted to crabbing, watching a crab shed, and helping with oyster reforestation, which became the foundation for my love of the Chesapeake Bay and all of its wildlife. It has always provided a rich source of inspiration for my art.

As a young mother, I was fortunate to raise my son on these same magical shores for more than twenty-four years. It truly is a special place and I am grateful to have been able to pass along my love for the Chesapeake Bay to him.

Living in Charleston, SC for the last four years has also provided amazing inspiration for my art. The changing colors of the low country marshes are simply stunning. The extreme tide changes here remind me how life can change as quickly as the tides.

Nevertheless, like the pull of the tide, the Chesapeake Bay will always draw me back to cherished memories and a place I was fortunate to call home. For more information about the art or to order a print, please visit the collections page.
