|Elizabeth Parsons Village Painting|
Elizabeth is a self-taught folk artist who specializes in scenes of the Ocracoke she remembers from growing up on the island. She often includes depictions of the early post office, old general stores, the mailboat Aleta, and island churches. Be sure to visit Elizabeth when you are on the island. And tell her Philip sent you! While you are at it, stop across the street and purchase some of Della Williams Gaskill's jams and preserves (Della is Elizabeth's sister). You will be glad you did. Elizabeth and Della will give you a genuine Ocracoke Island experience.
