Jan Darcy has been painting consistently for two and a half years. Focused mainly on acrylics and canvases, Jan finds inspiration from the Cape views and from her friends and family.

Michelle Staniels, the youngest of Jan's three daughters, graduated from college with a degree in the arts, with a focus on photography. She spends the bulk of her time professionally photographing weddings and families. She doesn't stop there. She works closely with Love Live Local and the Current Quarterly with fashion and the community. 

From the artists: "It's in the genes... or maybe in the water...? I think it's in the water. Much of this show is about Cape Cod and the water. We may leave the Cape for a few years but we always return to the call of the ocean. Our heritage dates back to the Mayflower... so maybe it's in the genes. "
