Chapin: History, Character, Values
I have found so much joy and peace living on Lake Murray. I’ve been blessed to have seen so many gorgeous sunsets which I have attempted to capture as the backdrop for the images of the historical landmarks. Each landmark has its own story and is part of the historical, cultural and aesthetic beauty of our town which defines our past.
About the Artwork

The blessing of that includes gorgeous sunsets which she attempted to capture as the backdrop for the images of historical landmarks. Each landmark has its own story and is part of the historical, cultural and aesthetic beauty of our town which defines our past. The sailboat is beautifully decorated in paints and other materials. The metal form, based on the Chapin Town Logo, was created by Steven Reed. The artistry on this sailboat was done by JJ Casey.

About the Artist
Growing up on Miller Farm in Orangeburg, SC, I have always been inspired by nature. I’ve been painting for over 25 years and have participated in numerous workshops. My media of choice is watercolors but I also enjoy mixed media, collage, and mono-printing. Over the years I have developed my own style of impressionism. I’ve exhibited locally and throughout South Carolina; notably at Tablerock State Park, Hickory Knob, Keowee-Toxaway, and The South Carolina State Museum as well as Pickens County Museum. I am passionate about the history of Chapin and have been instrumental in forming the Chapin Historical Association.
