NORTH BENNINGTON -- Graham Scarborough Davidson, 35, a resident of Water Street in North Bennington died on Monday, Sept. 1, in Pennsylvania, as a result of injuries that she sustained in an automobile accident, while traveling with her husband, while returning from and artisan show in Pennsylvania.

She was born in Abilene, Texas on Dec. 18, 1967, and was the daughter of Charles and Carolyn Scarborough. She received her education in Texas, and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, with a BBS degree in business. She moved to Vermont several years ago, and began her legacy as a three-dimensional artist.

She had always enjoyed creating art. However, she had never received any formal training in fine art. In 1995 she was convinced by a friend to enter some of her drawings into an art competition, much to her surprise, she won a second place. Since then her hobby had blossomed into a full time career. She is best known for the three-dimensional collages that she created from her prints of her drawings. Not only did she enjoy creating her works, but she loved showing her creations. It gave her great pleasure to share her whimsical three-dimensional shadow boxes with the public. Her themes always showed life in a humorous and romantic light. It was important to her to take delight in the absurdities that she found in life and to share that delight with others. It was exciting to her to make people happy through her art.

In creating her work, she would start off by illustrating a title or theme using colored pencil and ink. She would have mechanical prints made of her drawings and then hand-cut the prints apart and piece them back together using foam core, thus making it three-dimensional. Within the matting she created, the titles or stories would by incorporated. Then the piece was placed into a wooden shadow box. The final product was a three-dimensional paperworld that is designed to make the viewer happy.

She is survived by her mother, Carolyn (Hunnicutt) Scarborough, her father and step-mother, Charles and Candy Scarborough, and her paternal grandmother, Mozelle Scarborough, her sister, Louise Kujala, two step-sisters, Heather and Hayley Gibson and nephew, Michael Kujala, all of Abilene, Texas.

Graveside funeral services will be held on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 7, at 2 p.m. at the Bennington Hebrew Cemetery at Park Lawn Cemetery, with Rabbi Howard Cohen, of Beth El Congregation officiating. There are no calling hours scheduled.

Memorials in her honor may be made to the Jimmy Fund, in care of the Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Home, P.O. Box 957, Bennington, Vermont 05201. To find directions or to offer e-mail condolences, contact www.nsm.org/covey
