Trudy Overlock has a wide experience of life, from department store work on many levels to public relations to legal secretary and para-legal work to photo-colorist to private secretary for a Wall Street financier to minister’s wife to advertising copy writer to mural and stage artist for dance studios to baker and supplier of pies to restaurants.
Trudy was a professional vocalist, singing at a wide range of venues, from Maine’s Lakewood Inn to the grandstand at the Skowhegan State Fair. She’s volunteered to sing, for veterans at the Togus Veterans’ Hospital and inmates at the Maine State Prison. She designed and had built the home where she raised her two stepsons.
In Vassalboro she has established a gallery where over a hundred of her paintings are on display in the eighteenth-century house she restored. It’s there she wrote Visions in Poems and Poetry.
