I am starting to work on my personalized valentines. Check out VALENTINE on the site under Holidays. I can write initials into the picture at no extra charge. I can also add a name or names for a personalization fee. Happy 2011!

Thank you!

Thanks to all for the great orders I received this fall season. I so enjoyed working on each. It was fun matting and sending out packages throughout the Christmas season. I am now at my parents’ home enjoying time with my family. I am looking forward to working on some new pictures this winter.

I can hardly believe that fall is truly here.
I have decided not to travel this year to my usual fall shows. I will be part of a wonderful open house on Sunday, October 24, 11AM to 5PM at Maggie Stultz’s studio in Esmont, Virginia. If you are interested please write to me for directions. There will other artists featured as well in a lovely setting. Lots of refreshments!

Southern Lady Magazine

July 20th, 2010

I am excited to be advertising in the next three issues of my favorite magazine, SOUTHERN LADY. I was fortunate to have a wonderful article written about me in last November’s issue. I have met many wonderful people through the connection to this beautiful publication.

Myrtle Beach

July 2nd, 2010

I was hoping I would be able to participate in the Carolina Craftsmen Craft Show in Myrtle Beach this August. I have been an exhibitor there for the past few years. Sadly, I will not be able to attend. I love the show and hope to be back in 2011. The show is a wonderful one. I hope anyone reading this who will be in Myrtle Beach the beginning of August will visit the show. The show features beautiful artwork and wonderful American craft. I will post detailed information asap.
