Publisher & Editor
Susan loves old, beautiful buildings—and has brought three nineteenth century buildings back to their former glory—most recently restoring an 1895 building on Munjoy Street. Thrilled to get back to producing editorial on her favorite subjects of art and architecture, she brings over fifteen years of experience in the publishing world to her newest venture, Decor Maine. Her proudest, most rewarding position by far however, is as mother to her three children, Cara, Casey, and Jack.
Kaylie received her MFA in Film and New Media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Soon after graduating, Kaylie returned to her native state of Maine to work as the production designer on an independent film with a Maine-based production company. Her work and interests run the gamut from printmaking to handcrafted stop motion animation. If she is not creating, you can find her basking in one of Maine’s bodies of water.
After spending the past three years at an advertising agency in Portland, Susan couldn’t be more excited to get back to her publishing roots at Decor Maine, combining a love for marketing and a passion for home decor. When she’s not crossing something off one of her many lists or tackling a new spreadsheet, she can be found exploring Maine’s mountains and trails, finding a spot at the bar of a growing list of favorite restaurants, scouring sales and salvage shops for a unique find, or diving into a home project on her 1850’s farmhouse and barn, where she lives with her husband and four rescue animals.
