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.

Art on the Parkway

Art on the Parkway

Saturday, October 15th and 16th
This is art festival where artists show and sell their creations on the grounds of Tuggles Gap Restaurant & Motel in beautiful Floyd County. 

Located at the intersection of Rt. 8 and Milepost 165.2 of the 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 2011.

Sat. 8-5 Sun. 11-4

     This evening I began to go through a large stack of papers placed in my 'art closet' on a shelf. I thought I'd save this for that and that for this, and so on. Looking at some of these tid-bits again, some left me shaking my head (what was that all about?), and some I wondered why I did not put them in a better place for keeping...It felt good to finally have a new tid-bit space so I can now start all over again in that process...well, you know how artists are, right? 
     One of the things I wanted to share was this drawing I did, perhaps it was my first year in college, or maybe my last year in high school. I wish I had titled it and dated it. It was intriguing because it closely resembles some of my most recent works, the ink drawings. Looking back, I can now see how my personal stye has developed over the years. Now, I contemplate in which direction I will move next.  
     I do know that I will be framing this tid-bit of my past, and perhaps calling it, 'My Closet Door'.
