Matthews House and Garden


If you are ever inclined to spend a day in the country, 
do visit Upperville, Virginia. Nestled in the foothills of the 
blue ridge mountains, between beautiful horse farms, 
vineyards, rolling hills and endless rock walls, 
you will find Matthews House and Garden, a lovely boutique 
tucked inside a reclaimed Primitive Baptist church.


Recently featured in Elle Decor and Apartment Therapy, 
Matthews houses an exquisite home collection artfully curated 
by owners Wanda Crossley, interior designer, and 
Kevin Chadwick, illustrator and artist.
The vast, light filled space is filled with a wonderful, fresh mix 
of old and new. It's the kind of place that makes you want a do-over.

So many of you have asked to see my work in person and 
I am pleased to tell you that Matthews has several 
of my giant dragonfly paintings framed and ready to hang!
