I mostly paint realistic landscapes (and other subjects), 90% in watercolors and 10% in oils. I usually work “plein air”, and try to be true to both the scene presented and my personal reactions to said scene. I've been doing this since 1980, and thus have hundreds of paintings available. I paint because it's an amazing world out there, full of wondrous things, if we'd only stop and notice.

My colored pencil prints are created with a true sense of purpose and an affinity for the image in my mind. I like to make the ordinary unordinary and enjoy drawing beautiful, funny, and whimsical art. The beauty of Southwest Virginia is an influence. I also love to sit in nature when I sketch and draw my pictures.

|Claudia Brown||Superior Photography||Tazewell|
My photography is for people who love the outdoors, wildlife and the beauty of nature. It is for everyone who wants to listen to water running over the rocks of a small stream or feel the warm sun after a long winter, or smell the clean smell after a rain. It's for those who enjoy watching a fawn with a doe, or a black bear cub with its mother.
I love the outdoors, I thank God for it, and I want to share it with others through my prints and greeting cards.

A great love for the Appalachians inspires the variety of subject material for my watercolor art. My concentration on painting spring houses, something that is quickly fading away, (typically located near a spring where cool water flowed through, these structures were used to house milk, eggs, butter, etc.) helps to preserve those things that will soon be gone. I have a studio in my home and in process of completing a gallery. I am also a watercolor art instructor.
I photograph the places and objects people have built, repaired, neglected and refurbished, destroyed or re-purposed.
My photos imply and portray people through their possessions, their signs, their spaces and the stories told by the objects and marks they leave behind.
The actions recorded in the things and places we make tell more about us than a smile or a pose, and hide less.

I was given a camera at the age of five and immediately began taking pictures. I like to capture scenes for others to enjoy and also do something that I love. I have a profound love for nature and the rustic theme...mills, old barns, and farm scenes. I take photographs of scenes or objects that catch my eye. I take many different photos of the same scene or object, some from different angles to catch a different perspective. From those many photos, I choose the best one.

Paintings reflecting the countryside of Virginia.
|Mary Denson||Denson Fine Art||Tazewell|
My inspiration and vision comes from the inner and outer beauty of the simple view of life. My work goes beyond physical likeness to paint personality, spirit and faith. Painting and photography are my first loves; however, I have begun to work with a multimedia process, incorporating technology and digital art.

|Ellen Elmes||Ellen Elmes||Buchanan|
As a muralist and watercolor painter, I am inspired and informed in my work by the beauty, cultural heritage, and spirit of these ancient Appalachian Mountains where I live. My local murals can be viewed in southwest Virginia in Richlands, Clintwood, Tazewell, and Southwest Virginia Community College, as well as several in Kingsport, TN. My watercolors celebrate the rhythms of family, nature, and cycles of life. A series of eight acrylics entitled "Tribute to the Stanley Brothers" is permanently on display in the Community Center adjoining the Ralph Stanley Museum in Clintwood, VA.

I love to paint and draw people, places and things. I find the challenge of painting from life so rewarding. You can fully appreciate colors and the experience by having the person or object in front of you. I find inspiration from studying artists of the past and the world around me.
|Terri Fisher||Smiling Cat Studio||Giles|
Smiling Cat Studio is named for the happiness and contentment I feel when creating something new, like a happy cat in a sunbeam! Hand-pulled linoleum block prints (linocuts) featuring baskets, cats, architectural details, and flowers are my current fixation, though I sometimes wander into basket weaving, colored pencil, water color, origami, bead weaving, needle arts, and other media.
|Aileen Fletcher||Childress Road Studio||Montgomery|
I create photos which are printed on mounted canvas and then painted by hand with oil paint. I use both digital and darkroom techniques. I use Photoshop extensively to create panoramas, digital collages, and infared effects. My favorite subject is southwest Virginia. I love landscapes. I also work with color photography and do watercolors.
