Welcome to our new location in Gordonsville, VA - it's so nice to meet you!
I was born in Germany and moved to the United States when I was 19 to study Fine Art at the Corcoran Gallery School of Art in Washington D.C. where I specialized in Printmaking and Painting.
My love for design and beauty brought me to custom framing in 1992 and I have been a working artist in tandem throughout the years.
I founded LA LINEA BELLA Fantastic Framing & Art and ATELIER ONE GALLERY in 2010 after running two other beautiful workshops, and moved to Gordonsville in 2017 to start CAVALLO GALLERY.
I am incredibly altruistic at heart and very strongly believe in community and supporting one another - I am active as the founding member of Main Street Events LLC ( with fellow Gordonsville partners Well Hung Vineyard and The Nathaniel Inn), run a blog named Love Gordonsville VA, and I am active in the Orange County Chamber of Commerce & on the Advisory Board of Orange County Tourism. I am also a wellness blogger & advocate for DoTERRA and am pursuing a side career as a health and nutrition counselor, specializing in AIP and the healing powers of food.
I believe in creativity and thinking outside the box.
Growing up and traveling in Europe gave me a great sense of color, history, texture and style. My always forward thinking sense of design, love of artistry and strong work ethic have made me a favorite among my long time clients and friends for over 25 years.
My two mini-companions TITUS and PANDORA (two long haired dappled Dachshunds) can be found either at the studio or on their jumbo Italian leather sofa in their new Gordonsville home.
I look forward to meeting & finding out more about you and your creative dreams! As always, I recommend making an appointment before you come out to Gordonsville to make sure I can devote as much time to your projects as possible!
See you soon, Beate
