Virginia, United States
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 years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

New Blog-Southwest Virginia Artists

     I wanted to share a new blog!
 Southwest Virginia Artists

       I am truly excited about the creation of Southwest Virginia Artists. The blog is for local and regional artisans, musicians, and writers, etc. 

     I am meeting new artists, learning about techniques, and learning about the rich talent in the state of Virginia. This site features, fine art, fine craft, photography, musicians, writers, actors, and more all in one place! There are listings for galleries, classes, and other Southwest Virginia happenings. I refer to it as an 'Art Center' on the net!

     This site is a fantastic place to get your art out into the wide open and reach so many! I would like to encourage artists to visit the site and contact me if you are interested in being part of the site, or would like more information. 

     Here is the wonderful mission of the site!


To connect Virginia Artists and Crafts people with the World and each other. A place to find and make direct contact with the best Virginia has to offer.
A place where Artists of all disciplines and abilities can display their work, their Galleries and Businesses, discuss their opinions, ask for technical help, recommend a product, find a tutor, write a blog, find buddies to paint, sketch, pot, make jewelry or play music with.  A place to find art and crafts or advertise your own work.
A place where all the Folks and Businesses that support and appreciate the Arts and Crafts activities of Virginia can be found. We include in this, music venue of all types, from the Winery to the restaurent that has Jazz on a Saturday Night, to the Coffee shop that rotates local artists on its walls, to the guy that gets the framing just so and the list goes on…..
