Meet Tim Worth and his Decoys . . .
Tim Worth, born in Kittery, Maine, raised in Waterford, Connecticut, is a Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science Graduate of the University of Connecticut. He moved to Edgefield County 20 years ago to begin his career at Savannah River Site. He and his wife Beth reside in their restored Edgefield historic home, Halcyon Grove.
Tim began carving decorative and hunting decoys in 1987. For the last 10 years he has concentrated solely on hunting decoys, carved primarily in cedar, sugar pine, cork, and balsa wood. He has made over 300 decoys in the last 20 years and is a member of the South Carolina Artisan Center in Walterboro . . .

and native Edgefield artist, Andrew M. Corley . . .
Working in oils primarily with a pallet knife, Andrew Corley paints a variety of landscapes and cityscapes with themes related to South Carolina. Some of his favorite subjects are low-country marshes, rivers, coastal scenes and some mountains. “For me, art should be both pleasurable to view and fun to create” Say’s Andrew. Having some success in working with watercolors, his favorite medium is oils. As a teenager he studied with local artist such as Mildred Dunevant, Beth R. Welsh and the late Phyllis Brousseau – all of Edgefield. Andrew maintains a small display in Havens Framemakers & Gallery, 1616 Gervais Street in Columbia, where he often participates in painting classes that inspire him and allow him to connect with other artists in South Carolina. Check out his website When he isn’t painting, Andrew works at The University of South Carolina where he teaches Spanish and Latin-American studies.

and Annie . . .
Annie lives and works in a small town in Georgia. She has
worked hard all her life. One day she thought she might
like to learn to paint . . . and she did. We love her
poetry and her paintings and we know you will too.

you just might find it
at Paperwhites!
