About the Artist:

I am a self-taught freelance artist currently living in Columbia, South Carolina. Native born in South Mississippi, I remember painting alongside my grandmother, Mable G. Hust, who was a locally well-known artist in the Hattiesburg area. Although I did not follow in her footsteps in style or subject, she still encouraged and inspired me to develop my own artistic vision.

I find myself deeply inspired and influenced by the works of such artists as Zdzizlaw Beksinski, Remedios Varo,  Rosaleen Norton,  and Salvador Dali. I’ve worked primarily in oils from 1999 to 2006 in a style akin to Surrealism with a strong focus on Symbolism.  Since 2008, I've found my niche working with polymer clay on both canvas and wood.  I paint the clay using acrylic paints and pigment powders, and using beads and "found objects" as embellishments.   Working in this mixed media has opened up a whole new creative world for me as this is something very new and unexplored!  Taking part in the creative process  of making art  rewards me with a sense of  great fulfillment and accomplishment.
