Here’s a little video to give you a studio sneak peek. It’s looking a lot more lively inside the Alpena Mercantile, where the Wild Ozark Studio is located. Opening day is this weekend! We’ll have a Grand Opening later on after all of the operational kinks are ironed out.
Saturday, April 1 9am to 4 pm 214 Main Street, Alpena AR
We’ll be open at least every Saturday, and I’ll be there anytime the creeks aren’t over the bridge. Except on April 15. I won’t be there that weekend because I’ll be in Little Rock doing a paint-making demonstration. But the other vendors will be there!
Studio Sneak Peek
Want a sneak peak inside my studio space at Alpena Mercantile? This is both my studio work space and gallery. Behind that counter there is a ton of shelf space for supplies. I’ll sit outside with my easel on good days and behind the counter on not-so-good ones. At the moment, my pochade box goes back and forth with me so I have paints to work with both at home and at studio, but eventually I’ll get more paints made.

In 2018 she began experimenting with watercolor painting, using her local pigments. She calls them Paleo Paints. In 2023 she began her journey into the world of oil painting with those same pigments. Her paintings of the Ozark-inspired scenes feature exclusively the lightfast pigments foraged from Madison county, Arkansas. Her inspiration is nature – the beauty, and the inherent cycle of life and death, destruction and regeneration. Wild Ozark is also the only licensed ginseng nursery in Arkansas.
