My cousin-in-law (a fellow Richmond, Virginian) pointed me in her direction awhile ago, thinking (correctly!) that I would appreciate her aesthetic, and I was struck not only by the astounding quality of her artwork, many of which remind me of works by great impressionists like Monet and Cezanne, but also by her un-flashy, good-hearted commitment to the non-profit world from which she hails: she donates a portion of her proceeds to select non-profits every year.
Price smiles when she talks about her family, particularly her grandfather, who was an artist both by trade and hobby in Bedford. Back when food labels still required an artist’s touch, she recalled how he’d create colorful renditions for canned tomatoes or jars of applesauce. Those experiences made an impression on her and it’s why “growing up I was obsessed with art,” she said, particularly drawing and sketching.
