Thank you so much for stopping by. My name is Robin Rathbone Weatherby and I was born in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I moved to several wonderful places while I served in the military, but the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains are my home and my inspiration. I have always loved art and have enjoyed it in many forms. I came across a photo of a gourd piece and was immediately captivated; I thought to myself, ‘I can do that’, so I found a local gourd grower and I have been hooked ever since! I am especially blessed because I am North Carolina’s first Gourd Light artist. Adding light to a work adds a new dimension to the art, it is transformed and so is the room!! My joy, like most artists, comes from the creating of each project. Each is unique and is one of a kind, they have their own ‘personalities’ and I enjoy discovering them and showing them to the world.
My name is Denise Rathbone Dorn I also grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I have always loved exploring our mountains and waterways, finding treasures that will brighten and inspire. I love working with driftwood, bringing pieces back to life. My goal is to create pieces that can fill your home, office or any space with a touch of nature.
