Explore the Music from K.T. Vandyke

Born in the deep black diamond hills of southwestern Virginia, K.T. Vandyke is a unique and gripping songsmith, who wields folk songs and prose that reflect his vibrant and temptestuous life.


Currently stationed in Johnson City, Tennessee while studying Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Celtic Music Studies at East Tennessee State University, Vandyke has been performing in the greater Appalachian region and neighboring metropolitans areas for the last eight years.


Vandyke is currently working with Grammy Award winning sound engineer David Castle of Castle Recording on his debut album “Portrait of a Nomad”.

Explore the Artwork of Laura Blankenship

Hi there, Laura here. You can call me LaMB if you want to (my painting name comes from my initials). I can’t remember when I wasn’t drawing or painting.


After growing up in the town of Abingdon–a small artistic and cultural haven in rural Virginia–I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the College of William & Mary in Psychology, just short of a Fine Arts minor, minoring instead in Philosophy.


I had the privilege of teaching elementary art for seven weeks in Spring 2015 as a substitute teacher, and fell in love with it! This delightful opportunity allowed me the means to afford a summer off. I took the offer of a scholarship to go to Penland School of Crafts as a studio assistant for a summer session. Even more exciting, I hiked from the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia all the way home to Virginia in Summer 2015.


If you’re interested in booking a live painting event or just checking out my work, you’ve come to the right place. Sign up for my newsletter, follow the blog, or add me as a friend on facebook or follow me on instagram so you can watch me grow on my spiritual, artistic, visionary journey!
