Beaufort, founded in 1709, is North Carolina's third oldest town. Its twelve-block historic district contains over one hundred homes, many over a century old. Beaufort artist Mary Warshaw is re-creating on canvas one of the finest features of the homes - their porches. There is as much variety in how the porches were built as there is in the homes themselves. The earliest homes had steep-pitched roofs that covered full-length porches. Other homes have double porches, while others have porches that wrap around the house.
Beaufort artist Robert Irwin discusses his life and work with Morris. In the 1970s, he studied under George Bireline at the North Carolina State University School of Design. In the 1980s, he founded Images, Inc., a design and fabrication company that made high-end custom furniture. He later sold the company and moved to Beaufort in 1991, where he lives and paints.
