Mrs. Knight’s Porch at the Whalehead Club
20”x20” giclee, deckle edge
Limited edition of 50 $200.
The Whalehead Club is the most elegant of the Hunt Clubs on the Outer Banks. Built 1922-1925 by Edward Collings Knight for his wife Marie Louise, so they could hunt the abundant waterfowl together, since the other hunt clubs did not include women. Outfitted with Tiffany fixtures and the first Otis elevator, it is still the Grande Dame, is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is now part of Currituck County Science Center, Corolla, N.C.
I envision it the way it was – with unspoiled sand dunes, uninterrupted views of the Sound, wild ponies grazing nearby, and a perfect summer sky.

This painting began as a demo for a watercolor painting class I was teaching. We brought in fresh flowers, my garden gloves and trowel, a picnic cloth and a big straw hat. It is fresh in so many ways, as it came together before our eyes that day in class. The giclee is so true to color I can’t tell it from the original.
The Amazing Technicolor Dream-Goats

Sometimes you find something special when you are just looking for something ordinary! I was driving around Nash County, looking for old tobacco barns to paint. Going down a road I’d never been on, I came upon a farmhouse with these goats in the back. They all trotted up to the fence to see me, and as you can see, each with their own personality. I experimented with painting each one in its ‘personality color” – a great discovery that values really do work!
Catch Me If You Can

My Daddy was a fisherman, and I love visual plays on words. In the gallery one day, we were laughing about what it would be like to paint “Rainbow Trout” as a rainbow. I soon learned that there are many variations in patterns on rainbow trout, and elaborate lures to catch them. Playing with scale, and imagining what it is like to be caught, this watercolor has become a favorite – men and women both like it!
The Red Door at Colleen’s Cabin

The old red screen door creaks open frequently to welcome friends to this rustic cabin, nestled in North Carolina’s whispering pines near Davenport Mill Pond.
Slip into a place of quiet charm, step onto the soft moss of the old millstone, its working days through. Soon you’ll pull up a chair on the screen porch for a hand of bridge, or step inside the cabin to see what’s for supper. It’s hard not to relax in such a magical place – especially when you can hear it raining on the tin roof.
Rocky Mount Heroes

The rising floodwaters from Hurricane Floyd overtook Rocky Mount on the evening of September 15, 1999. As torrential rains and raging flood waters attacked the city, its employees came to the aid of neighbors, friends, family and strangers in flooded areas throughout the community. For over a year, I worked with city employees from every division to create this omniscient view of the heroic acts that went on across many miles. Rocky Mount Heroes honors the rescuers and the rescued, commemorating one of the most significant events in the history of North Carolina.
