Roberta Demski is a self-taught artist who began painting on rocks from her yard as a fun pastime. Some of her first artwork was given as gifts to family members.These were used as paperweights, doorstops and mementoes. After being encourged to continue painting, she began to paint on natural woods, slate and canvas. Her subjects include animals, landscapes, Historical sites and wildlife. Some of her most renowned works are of Belle Grove Plantation, a historic attraction in the area, painted on original slates from the roof of Belle Grove. The artist's studio is set in the lovely Shenandoah Valley with a view of the Allegnany and BlueRidge Mountains, which have inspired some of her beautiful landscapes.
