Growing up an Air Force brat, Beth has lived and traveled all over the country and parts of Asia. After graduating from the University of Illinois, and prior to her full-time involvement in fine art and crafts, she had extensive experience in graphic design and advertising.

Andy grew up in Evanston, Illinois and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in medieval history. Before getting involved in the arts, he held several positions in a corporate office environment.

We are both strong supporters of the arts in our community. Andy is the Executive Director of the Allegany Arts Council, and serves as the Coordinator for the Arts & Entertainment District in Downtown Cumberland. Andy is also a Board Member for the Tri-State Community Health Center and for the Cumberland Rotary Club. He also serves as a member of Cumberland’s Downtown Development Commission and is the Co-Chair of the Allegany County Chamber of Commerce’s Tourism Committee.

In our spare time, we enjoy playing with our two unruly dogs (Zoo and Bogi), having dinner out with friends, working on our loft, traveling, playing tennis and softball, and collecting art and old cameras. Of course, there never seems to be enough time to do all these things because we’re usually hard at work in our studio or busy with community activities!
