About Penny Linn

I graduated from Colby College in 1973 and remained in Maine with my husband. We have built two houses and raised two boys. We currently live in Belfast, Maine. Upon retirement I made the decision to return to photography, an interest I had pursued in high school and college. I have studied photography at Maine Media Workshops and with Belfast photographer, Neal Parent.


Currently my photographs can be seen at Mainly Gallery & Studio, Belfast, ME
