Deborah works in a variety of media but concentrates on pen-and-ink and watercolor painting. She has been commissioned to paint many watercolor portraits and her work has been exhibited locally and hangs in numerous private and institution collections. Active in organizations in the community, including Central Virginia Arts and the Woman’s Club of Farmville, VA GFWC, she was on the Board of the Heart of Virginia Festival for many years.

Richard constructs three-dimensional objects, especially of architectural designs. He also makes artist books, marble raceways and collages of incongruous items, making these objects for his own and others amusement. He is active in the local art scene, as former co-president of Central Virginia Arts, as a member of the advisory boards of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and of the Atkinson Museum at Hampden-Sydney, and as a volunteer designer for local groups, such as the Visitor Center and the Moton Museum.
