Salisbury Cove, Maine
Lena Hatch came to MDI for the 1st time in 2010. In 2011, she returned and grabbed a real estate magazine before heading back home where she found a business for sale in Bar Harbor and discovered the owner was ill and needed to sell quickly. Lena, her mom and children bought the store “Maine Nature Photos” in town. During the 4 seasons Lena had the shop, she began to fiddle around with sea glass art, glass on glass. After meeting Nan Ulett, a local artist who told her about resin to set the artworks, she began to grow how she used her shop’s inventory, plus her own and her husband’s MDI beach finds into some of the pieces on exhibit. With her husband of 5 years, Lena has since taken ownership of the Heathwood Inn Bed & Breakfast in her husband’s hometown of Salisbury Cove.
