I am the retired innkeeper of Gracehill Bed and Breakfast.  I closed and sold the B&B, and built and opened Gracehill Fine Art and Basketry at 110 Mountain Ave in Townsend, TN.  It’s a corner lot on Hwy 321 across the highway from the Gulf Gas Station.  It has been a journey!  Hours vary but I live here and am open most days

For those of you missing Gracehill B&B and the award-winning view, you can purchase my best sunset photos printed on canvas at the art gallery.

After painting in oils for most of my life, I discovered and fell in love with Alcohol Inks. With alcohol ink, it all comes down to the spontaneity of the medium and the brilliant color.  I paint mostly mountain scenes and floral with an occasional abstract thrown in.  You can buy originals framed with conservation clear glass or in a clip art glass frame.  The painted tiles are all original.  I do have matted archival giclee prints of some of my originals also available priced between $15 and $35.  The inspiration for these paintings is the gardens and mountains that surround me.

Southern Long Leaf pine needle gourd or porcelain center baskets are one of a kind.  If interested I explain the process for preparing the gourd and pine needles.  I use found driftwood, gemstones, waxed linen, and other curious objects like philodendron leaf and palm inflorescence.  Many of my baskets are now done on commission.

By the beginning of June, I hope to have in stock mugs, totes, and pillow covers with my art printed on them.

I am having the time of my life.  Visit!
