Art Studio on Meeting Street is where it began for me, where I first came back to become a painter again, after being only a teacher all of those years.  It looks like a rough location, but it’s a place of wonder to me. Trash cans and graffiti may […]

Beach has always been one of my favorites, after spending a few years living there as a child.  This is the laid back beach of the Charleston area, the hippy-beach (as some like to call it) we all know, love and embrace. Crosby Seafood has been here forever it seems, as […]

something special about a home that bears your own name even to this day.  This home was built by my grandmother’s father in Mullens, SC.  Both my Aunt and I were named after my grandmother Gladys Ruffin Yarborough, though the last the letters were dropped. Early on as a […]

little painting takes place at Meeting and Market Streets. The old city market was where in times of old the people of Charleston would sell a variety of goods from foods, to wares, flowers, almost anything, but it was not ever a slave market.  Though Charleston did deal […]
