Tricia Simpson of Urban Easel, Shepherdstown. events.

Simpson has studied art for most of her life, and found herself teaching it as a result— most recently at a local private school. But the urge to broaden her reach, and spread art into the community fi nally pushed her to go out on her own. “Shepherdstown has such

a vibrant art scene. It felt natural to come here,” she explains. “I think we need to balance all of the technical and logical today with something that moves a deeper side of ourselves. I hope to nurture and help grow artists of all ages, but I really want to bring children to see art as another form of communication and expression.”

La Niche Boutique

Mixes Art and Style Harpers Ferry is seemingly ready-made for the boutique experience. Its charm is easily enhanced by the abundance of shops and restaurants that tuck themselves enchantingly in and among one another on the side of the famous hill overlooking two rivers.


One of these likable little outposts is La Niche Boutique, owned by Veronica Burnside— who spent over 20 years in graphic design before fulfi lling her dream to own her own business. Burnside’s shop offers up an inspiring variety of women’s accessories within a comfortable environment and a belief that “you don’t have to spend a lot to look fabulous.” Known by her family and

friends for most of her life as the “artsy and

I think they appreciate change and it keeps them curious and coming back.” La Niche (180 High
