Wine & Paint Parties
Leonor Crossley originally hails from Pennsylvania, where she received her bachelor of fine arts degree in communication design from Kutztown University. She is a freelance graphic designer/artist who has enjoyed drawing and painting ever since she was a little girl. Working at Artistic Abandon gives her the chance to do something she loves and allows her to share her passion for art with others. Besides art, Leonor enjoys spending time with her daughter and family, listening to music and traveling.
Rosemary Winn is a native of eastern North Carolina. At UNC Chapel Hill she discovered her love for darkroom photography and the Italian language. She combined the two loves and studied art in Italy for a few months. While there, fresco painting became an expressive medium for her. Returning to her Carolina roots, she now lives in the Raleigh area. Last year, she received an emerging artist's grant from the Durham Arts Council to fund a photography project. When she needs a break for inspiration, you can find her rock climbing or taking her dogs for a long drive.
