Calling All local artists!

I appreciate all forms of art. To be able to create something from little or nothing is inspiring. I have been creating for as long as I can remember. I’ve never been one to stick to one medium-I started making jewelry when I was probably around 7 or 8 years old; and while I still do that on occasion when the mood strikes, I have found other forms of art I love.  I’ve dabbled in lots of different mediums and even got my BS in Design. I’ve shared some of my projects on this blog in the past, and while they may not be traditional ‘art’ they were designed and created. I believe everyone has a little artist in them-you just need to explore until you find the right medium for you.


I’ve been wanting to start a personal photography project for a while now and the one idea I kept coming back to was art. Art in all forms. And all the talented local artists that live right here, in Shenandoah Valley that we may, or may not know about.


So. I’m looking. Looking for local artists who would let me in and see their craft. See them create. See what makes them tick.  What inspires them.   I want to spend the day with you and document you at work.  I want to share with everyone who you are as an artist.

I have no start date or end date for this project. I have no specials dates set aside to work on this. I will just let this project grow and flow organically like everything else.  If you or someone you know would be interested in this opportunity, please email me so we can discuss more in depth.

My ideal candidates would be local artists, crafters, hobbyists of all types: potters, painters, fiber/textile artists, metal artists, woodworkers, musicians.  I’m even looking for local farmers, wineries, breweries, gardeners, ranchers, bakers, chefs, etc.


I can’t wait to start working on this project and meet some of you and showcase your craft.
