Memorial weekend- if you’re in Asheville, NC make a stop in this historic neighborhood and get a taste of local artisans who create amazing art in their homes and home studios. For more information on the artists and map please go to : Kenilworth Art Studio Tour


Kenilworth Artists  Studio Stroll ~ May 27 & 28 ~ 10am -5pm

I am once again, participating in a studio stroll in the Kenilworth neighborhood of Asheville, NC.  There is great information on the 19 artists participating in this years tour at this link:, along with a map of the studios to visit.

My sheep family was inspired by the mountains I now live with, wrapping around us at every turn.  This  latest work will be on view along with a number of other new pieces for the studio stroll.




A few more samples of what you will find on Buckingham Court! Hope to see you there!

Mark your calendar for this great opportunity to view all kinds of art work and the studios where it was created.  

This is my  second time to participate in this great neighborhood event in Asheville, North Carolina. I join 14 other artists who will be opening up their homes or studios to display, sell and talk about their art. We are all part of the Kenilworth Artists Association.

Come and support your local artisans!


This year at my address – 17 Buckingham Court, two neighbors will join me.  There will be a yard full of art- jewelry, pottery and my own mixedmedia and paintings!

For more information on each artist check out  this link: Kenilworth Artist Associaton.
