In 1990, Patrice opened an antiques and art store at the Paris flea market and in 1995 an antiques and art gallery in Paris. He visited the United States on business for the first time in 1996 and moved to Pensacola, Florida, in 2001 working as an antiques and art dealer, and to Birmingham, Alabama in 2003, where he lives today. He became a full time artist in 2006, and became a listed artist in 2007

ANNE HATHAWAY DESIGNS ~ HALL C 132-133 January 11, 2014

Posted by comeintomygarden in Art, Home Decor.

Most people know Anne Hathaway as an incredible artist who had a well known shop on Bennett Street in downtown Atlanta, and specialized in her prints, original artwork and pottery. Anne was a Lakewood 400 dealer for two years when it opened, but left to handle the busy traffic at her shop. With the shop now closed, she is back at Lakewood 400!
   Meanwhile, Anne’s husband, Eric Lee, sold his restaurant to become a stay-at-home Dad. Children grown, Eric then became the craftsman at Anne Hathaway Designs who builds wonderful furniture from reclaimed wood including Farm Tables. They provide the history of the wood with each piece, such as wood from an old three story plantation house built in Jackson, GA, in 1833. They have been working on for awhile that wood for quite a while.
    Anne is a self-taught artist, inspired by famed artist Georgia O-Keefe, and known first by her botanical watercolors and then for her colorful depictions of animals, fish and birds. Her artwork has been described as sophisticated whimsy and has been depicted on original watercolors, prints and dinnerware. Her artwork has universal appeal and inspires smiles around the world. Indeed, her art is featured in such places as the London wine merchant, Justerini and Brooks LTD, and on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships.
Eric’s hobby is tracing the genealogical history of his family which goes back to 320 AD. Anne’s family came over on the Mayflower.
You will enjoy checking out these beautiful works of art and talking with Anne and Eric.

Doug and Cherylin Cutter have traveled the world over to bring fascinating items to their shoppe along with items from their own collections. They started at Lakewood 400 and Historic Lakewood in 2005 and continue to enjoy it.
   Cherylin started very young going to auctions, estate sales and antique shows with her parents. Both parents were educators and every event became a teaching experience. Her mother dreamed that she and Cherylin’s Dad would retire and travel in their motor home selling and collecting antiques while seeing all of the United States. Sadly, her mother passed away prior to retiring. Cherylin introduced Doug to antique shows and the business. He owned a nice collection of antique pieces through his family and personal acquisitions. They enjoyed meeting new people and adding to their own collections. They soon ran out of room at home and that’s when The Packrat’s Daughter began. It is a tribute to Cherylin’s parents and living her mother’s dream.
     Doug specializes in antique and collectible books, Life magazines from 1936 through the 1980s, and furniture. Cherylin loves European linens, ironstone, transfer ware, majolica and art. Their home is a blend of European and American antiques which carries over in their shoppe. In 2006, they added a sidekick, Bandit, a Jack Russell Terrier, who maintains his presence in their office area at all times. You can find the Cutters and Bandit in their huge shoppe in the back of Hall G.

One look into this shop and you know there is a creative owner. In this case, two creative owners, the team of Maidlene and Tommy Robinson.

     These two creative souls look for gracefully weathered and rusty things that they can bring back to life, often in a more useful role. They create art from salvage materials and frames from salvaged cypress wood. They also have a passion for vintage maps. This shop will surely catch your eye. It is full of unique art and decor.
    Maidlene and Tommy live in Suwanee, have two daughters in college, and love to travel around the Southeast looking for perfect items to bring to Lakewood 400 for their customers!

If you are looking for a special touch for your front door, artist Margaret Cameron may have just the art you are looking for. Her painted screen doors are an artful touch with a little whimsy to boot. Charlie Daniels liked her doors so much he commissioned her to paint him on his screen door. It looks just like he is standing there!

    painted screen doors at Lakewood 400  “Baltimore, MD, was well known for their painted window screens in the 1920’s,” says Margaret. “I thought I’d try my hand and the rest is history.”
     Margaret paints custom portraits in oil on canvas. In addition to her paintings and folk art, she also has Vintage Western Ware (clothing and boots) in her shop in Hall H.
Do you want Margaret to paint you standing in your doorway?

If you love gardening, flowers, or fairies, you will love meeting Fine Artist Michele Alcock.
Most of her life, Michele has been growing, foraging, dissecting, pressing, and drying botanicals … flowers, leaves and seeds, 12 months of the year. Every detail in her artwork is completely “painted” with botanicals, even down to the tiny seeds for eyes. Her amazing originals are reproduced using museum quality papers into Fine Art Prints, Cards, and Giclees on canvas. Michele does admit to embellishing her prints with tiny Swarovski crystals occasionally.
Michele has been honored at many art shows and has been selected as one of five artist to compete for the artwork for the 2013 Yellow Daisy Festival.
Enjoy meeting Michele and seeing her incredible fine art in Hall H 513.
