" I try to blend a bit of the out-of-doors into what I'm working on.I don't see a plain wall or worn piece of furniture as useless... I
tend to let the pieces 'evolve' on their own as they are already old,
and Father Time has already allowed them to age to a patina of
their own choosing... it's fantastic! It is much like a blank canvas to
me... I tend to do extensive research on my projects... even when
it may not make sense to others why I may do so... and my mind
is always overwhelmed with so many ideas...!"Ahhhhhhhh, variety IS the spice of life..."
L. Costello Hinchey
Wolfe Creek Studio in Poor Valley, Virginia
L. Costello Hinchey was born in Torrejón de Ardoz, Madrid, Spain. She now lives in the breath-taking Appalachian Mountains of Washington County Virginia.
Her formal education began at Virginia Highlands Community College, going on to an academic scholarship at Virginia Intermont College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts. Since then she has been doing a variety of personal and commissioned artwork. Presently she divides her time between her devoted family and her home studio. Her painted furniture has found homes in many states and has been sold in various marketplace shops and outlets along the east coast region. Her work is equally as popular with interior designers and decorators in the area. Much of her work is inspired from her mountain home like nature, plants, fruits, bugs, dogs, trout, wild animals! And my family supports and inspires me more than anything.
