Mya has degrees from Oberlin College and the University of Michigan, and formerly worked as a Southeast Asian language cataloger at the University of Michigan Graduate Library, but none of that is remotely related to what she's doing now.

  • Fred Sprock is an oil painter of landscapes and still life and has lived in Snow Hill since 2012. A native of North Carolina, Fred retired from a career in advertising to become a full-time painter, studying with Dee Beard Dean, Moran Samuel Price, and Richard Fennell to name a few. Sprock says, "Landscapes are complex. One of my goals is to simplify this jigsaw puzzle. The challenge for me is to reveal to the viewer the complexity beneath the surface of a seemingly simple visual."
