Everyone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the concerns and offers of help. If you aren't aware, Ellicott city Maryland experienced the worst flood since Agnes in 1978. My studio took in 4' of flood waters. I was lucky in all that I lost was some equipment and supplies but even those I will likely have to repurchase without help from insurance. Some paintings were floating and should be able to be repaired but not without time and money. I can't get back the portfolio and materials I've acquired over the 12 years I've been in business. And, I was working towards my first solo show this September. I've been through so much these past two years; the death of my mother and a divorce, and now this. This just sent me over the edge. Any little bit you can spare will help. Thank you, thank you, so very much.

I can't believe that so many people helped me with the rebuilding of my studio. I'm truly humbled by the enormous amount of love and support I've received from near and far. There is still a lot to do on lower Main Street and I implore you to share the Ellicott city partnership's page, helpellicottcity.com where they are distributing grants to businesses and residents that have been devastated by this unimaginable event.

I was able to pay it forward by donating sales of my Ellicott City print and mural to the partnership. Please read the news story here: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/howard/ellicott-city/ph-ho-cf-flood-painting-symbol-0908-20160909-story.html

Thank you to everyone who has donated here, sent me money directly, and helped out at the studio. #ecstrong

Hi Dee, I don't know if you remember me (Lisa Thurston), but I met you at a couple happy hours when I used to work with Mike at Straughan. My husband and I live in EC (off of 40) and I'd be happy to help you out with anything you need...cleanup, cleaning supplies, dinner. Just let me know. Our hearts go out to those who had art galleries/studios, since the art lost is not something replaceable. You can contact me on facebook at 'Lisa Thurston Bledsoe.'

Your character and grit is inspiring many people, and your leadership and determination in moving forward and staying connected and constructive despite everything is very helpful in this unbelievably challenging time. Odd as it may seem, I think you are very much the right person at the right place at the right time. Strength finds a way, #ECStrong #DeanneStrong
