Lia is a native of Mobile AL but grew up in the subtropics of South Florida in Hollywood on the Atlantic Coast.
At an early age she developed an interest in lettering and design which led her into a career in commercial art (before computers!)
Favorite Media are acrylics,watercolor, pen and ink and dabbling in working with metals, semi precious stones etc to create one of a kind jewelry pieces.
Lia's art borders on the whimsical side to tight Pen and Ink renderings.
She has had teachers through out her life who have influenced her. One in particular was Conway Lewis her high school art teacher.
Lia and her husband Dug lived on their 39' sailboat 'Lof'n' for 5 years and cruised in the Bahamas for some of that and were owners of the gallery Bungalow Artworks in Jacksonville, FL.
These days Lia is co-manager of RF Antiques, narrates Audio Books and has been seen on the stage at Theatre 98 from time to time when not creating visual art.

FUF hosts celebration of a 36-year relationship in same-sex marriage ceremony
On Monday, November 14, Don Sawyer presided at the marriage of two lovely women who were finally able to publicly celebrate their 36-year relationship in a moving ceremony at the Fairhope Unitarian Fellowship. As Don said at the ceremony, "Hopefully, we are at the point where marriage is not defined by the limited views and religious sanctions of the past, but by the love and commitment of partners entering into such a relationship." Linda and Rita had been unable to marry in their home church and reached out the FUF. It is a real joy to be able to support and help provide legal sanction to loving couples regardless of sexual orientation.
