A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

In fall 2019, I created a series of wooden egg people called Wee Forest Folk . These little gnomes are based on people I actually know in real life or names my family has made up around the house. We all have special names for each other, with a Dickensian twist. All of these natural, sustainable, & non-toxic toys have sold at the Owl & Rabbit Gallery in Burlington, NC. Elmer Oakenhurst has my Dad's handlebar mustache. I hand-painted little gems from the forest floor on his body. Niven Evensong was named for a man who worked for my Dad when I was just a child. In real life, Niven gave me a Western Barbie when I was just 3 years old. This Wee Forest Folk Niven is in charge of constellations and the magic of the outdoors during the night. Lovey McDuffins is a name that we call my youngest child, Nate, our baby who is just 2 years old. Just like Nate, Lovey spreads love and cheer to all who know him. He name is also a throwback to Lovey H
