Originally from Long Island, New York, Loretta Krupinski moved to South East coastal Connecticut, and currently lives in Mid-Coast, Maine. After graduating with a BFA degree from Syracuse University, Ms. Krupinski worked for many years as an illustrator and graphic designer, but has chosen to pursue a dual career as a maritime artist and an author and illustrator of 27 books for children. She has won numerous awards for both.

As a studio painter, Ms. Krupinski prefers to paint local harbors and classic wood boats. Her move to coastal Maine has prompted an additional interest in historical paintings of the maritime industry. As a sailor herself, she has come to know first hand the subjects she chooses to paint. Ms. Krupinski believes in the importance of preserving the images of the maritime waterfront for the future. Historical black and white photographs come to life through paint brush and color.

Ms. Krupinski is a Fellow and board member of the American Society of Marine Artists and the Salmagundi Club in NY, NY.
