We met while still in college, literally in an art studio, and art and design remains the common thread in our lives. Dail is an architect with a masters in sculpture and I spent the 1st half of my career as a graphic artist and now a photographer.
Our mountain house is the result of a lifetime of wishing we had a place at the coast, but after taking classes at the magical Penland School of Crafts, where Dail also has done numerous design projects, our little cottage is the result of the love of that community, our fabulous view, cool mountain air and the friendships we've made.
We've had our getaway for eight years, and the first thing we recommend is the porch, where any cares can drift off into mountain ranges.
We love going to Greece, where my family is from: Cephalonia, and we've been many times. Travel is our passion.
