Don Blackwell – Born and raised in Hendersonville, North Carolina, Don Blackwell’s pen and ink images reflect his love of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the inhabitants.  Don spent 23 years in the United States Air Force as an artist, and almost 30 years in Alaska.  He and his wife, Phoebe, have returned to the mountains of North Carolina to pursue their love of art and teaching others how to do their own art.
