I received the Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council. My work has been exhibited in galleries in North Carolina, New York, and California. I'm always learning new old country crafts, primitive and paradisal living skills.


I also have a sweet vintage shop, at http://etsy.com/shop/drucillapettibone
