I have written many features and profiles for SWVA Living, a quarterly, regional magazine published by The Roanoke Times. Some of my favorites:
A profile of boundary-pushing fiber artist Gibby Waitzkin
The story of popular landscape painter Nan Mahone Wellborn
A piece on the world of beekeeping
I’ve also written about asparagus as a first fruit of spring, why families still sit for portraits in the age of the instant photo, a profile of beloved rhododendron gardener Paul James, a piece about Virginia’s rich heritage of making apple butter and a how-to on planting fall bulbs.
