Ms. Nellie Ashford, Painter

I met Nellie Ashford at the New Taste of Stowe Arts Festival. She is a very special exhibitor, coming all the way from Charlotte, NC under often very difficult circumstances. Nellie is a self-titled Folk Artist, her paintings are mainly of families, children, dancers - they are all lively and vibrant and loving. Nellie told me that as a Folk Artist, she can do what she wants, break the rules! Her pieces are combinations of painted imagery and collaged fabrics.

Nellie gave me this piece after the second festival. I am so very honored to have it.

By chance, I found two pieces of Ms. Ashford's work in a Ross Store in Dallas, TX. They were blown glass serving trays with two different paintings on them. I don't just buy art on a whim... I have to love it. Needless to say, I'm pleased with my finds and totally obsessed with trying to get more pieces. I found an email address online, but it wasn't good. Do you know how I might contact her?

Thank you.
