About the Instructor: ​Mary L. Moquin

Mary Moquin is a professional artist and teacher. She lives on the cape and spends part of the year in a remote dune cottage on the peninsula known as Sandy Neck in Barnstable, MA.

Her work is represented in Wellfleet, MA at the Cove Gallery, North Water Gallery in Edgartown , MA, Alper’s Fine Art in Rockport, MA and at
