'Art condenses the experience we all have as human beings, and, by forming it, makes it significant. We all have an in-built need for harmony and the structures that create harmony. Basically, art is an affirmation of life.' Trevor Bell
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the past 45+ years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.
Rt. 8 and Milepost 165.2 Blue Ridge Parkway, Floyd, Virginia 24091
Art on the Parkway is an annual festival hosted by Floyd Artists Association. Blue Ridge Parkway and held during peak autumn color, Art on the Parkway connects "leaf peepers" and art patrons with area artists and musicians. Last year, several hundred people came to see and buy art, making it a very successful event for artist vendors. We anticipate even larger crowds for 2012!
