She not only brings this experience to the position, but also brings great enthusiasm and creativity.”
Creasey was the featured artist of the 12th annual Bright Lights, Belhaven Nights street festival (BLBN), where she drew her inspiration from Belhaven Park and the Bright Lights Belhaven Nights event, and created a unique 3-D painting for the festival that reflected elements of Belhaven.
