A devoted follower of art, Daphne has been a self-taught artist from the age of four and is convinced of the benefits that are linked through artistic expression.
Daphne graduated with honors from Ozarka College in Mountain View, Arkansas and studied through the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She has both tutored at the local elementary school and been involved in several artistic functions in the area for years. Although not a native to Stone County, she finds the mountains a beautiful place to draw inspiration from.
Daphne is the advertising manager and graphic designer at the Stone County Leader. She loves painting, sketching and sculpture but is always open to any path that involves color and meaning.
Daphne offers after-school art classes and first Saturday Kids Crafts at the Arkansas Craft School, believing in the magic of letting children wrap their fingers around real art media and allowing their imagination to explore and create!
