Peter Arenstam was born on a farm in western Massachusetts but grew up on the coast in historic Plymouth. He received a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, and apprenticed at the Maine Maritime Museum where he became an instructor and boat builder. Currently, Peter manages the Maritime Artisans at Plimoth Plantation where he oversees the reproduction ship Mayflower II.

Peter lives near the ocean in Plymouth with his wife Susan and their two daughters, Hannah and Abby.

Karen Busch Holman left the big city of New York for a quieter life in New Hampshire, but with two sons, a pair of mice, two housecats, a retired racehorse, and a house filled with artwork projects underway, it’s hardly quiet!
Karen’s earlier work was featured in G is for Granite: A New Hampshire Alphabet (Sleeping Bear Press) and its accompanying number book, Primary Numbers. Her work can be seen on the New Hampshire Heirloom Birth Certificate and throughout the state in support of the Arts Council. Karen works in several mediums, such as pen and ink, oil, pastel, and watercolor, and we hear that she isn’t quite as afraid of mice as she used to be.
