Fenwick Cut. As the River Flows. A Painting.

Edisto Island, the last undeveloped barrier island in South Carolina, with its culturally rich Gullah history and Eden like beauty, continues to inspire me.

I was called to be an artist. And as an old old midwife said to me "If the Lord wants you to do something, you won't have no good luck' til you do." So, here I am, sharing what I love, longing to illuminate the work of art, which is everywhere.

  1. Charlotte – not only would great-grandfather be proud i think he’d recognize it! love all your Low Country paintings- as i love his!

    • Thank you, Michael! I love the thought that Charles Woodward Hutson of New Orleans is watching us both! I saw his work at the Ogden in the spring! And did I tell you I have some letters of his in our family papers – he sent postcards to one of the Martin sisters – Mary I believe – of McPhersonville, SC.

What’s this?

Welcome to my blog about the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a place proud with beauty, history and art. Sometimes we feel a call, to be, to go, to do. I was called to be an artist, and as an old midwife from Alabama said, “If the good Lord wants you to do something, you won’t have no good luck until you do it.”

So here I am writing about what I know, about the 'under glimmer' as the poet Basho, says, the way I have learned to see, to notice. I am inspired by, and talking about the history and art and culture of this place that has called me to herself. By the ancestors.

My background includes a degree in fine arts from a small private college in Florida, and before that, four years of all girls' boarding school in Asheville. I worked as a professional photographer, helped my children grow up, and now and I love seasoned things, good food, better conversation, beauty, my beloved and beautiful Italian Greyhound, Beau. Moved by the sacred places and stories of this beautiful historic land called the Lowcountry, I am here in spirit and I hope to infect you with my love of this place.
