Self-Renaissance Led Artist to 3-D Jewelry

July 28, 2011

Ellen Ball cannot imagine life without art and creativity.
“As jazz great Miles Davis once said, ‘I would just wanna be dead if I couldn’t create,’” Ball said. “For me, it is as intrinsically necessary to being as breathing.”
Ball, 50, grew up in HIckory with creative parents in a household that included a painting studio, sewing room, workshop full of tools, art, music and books.
“There was no way I could not be an artist,” she said. “One of my first drawings was on the living room wall.”

Mountain Biking Made Easy

July 7, 2011

Mountain biking with a large family isn’t always easy. There are different speeds to consider, questions of endurance, child seats perched on the back of bikes versus toddler-sized carriages, and of course, those who don’t even care to bike. It is because there are so many factors that the location becomes imperative. Biking with friends, I found the perfect place that not only met everyone’s needs, but proved to be enjoyable even for non-bikers. It was a place as unique as its name: The Virginia Creeper Trail.
