Gypsy Mermaid

Arriving at the Market on July 30th!

I’m Anita Cranston with the Gypsy Mermaid.
My husband and I have a boat at the New Bern Grand Marina and stay on it a couple of weekends a month.
I’m originally from Texas where I met my husband, Scott. He was in flight school at NAS Corpus Christi but ended up joining the SEAL Teams.
While he is from Iowa and I am from Texas we have lived in:
Sasebo, Japan, California, Texas, Florida, Virginia, Louisiana, Washington State and now North Wilkesboro ,North Carolina.

I’ve been painting since I was in 5th grade and studied art at Del Mar Community College in Corpus Christi Texas.
More recently I was the executive director of the Blue Ridge Artisan Center located in the historical  “1915” Federal Courthouse In Wilkesboro, NC.

Now retired we spend a lot of time in New Bern on our boat “Feelin’ Froggy” as well as traveling to visit family in several other states.
As my alter ego I teach Tai Chi from my home studio as well as the Anytime Fitness here in North Wilkesboro.
