Portrait Artist Suzzanne Skipper: "I have always been fascinated by the face, the seat of all emotion, the year bearer, the tale teller, the part that announces first, who we are. It is the one body part that others may know more intimately about us than we do ourselves." suzzanneskipper.com/index.htm
I’ve always enjoyed riding horses, exploring nature studying shapes, spaces, colors and forms. My paintings are examples of how I try to capture and translate what I see.

I'm painting full time and teaching watercolor classes. Touching brush to paper and watching the flow of color is wonderful. Life could not be any better. Contact me to create a personal portrait.

Nelson was born in Nashville, Tennessee where he learned a love for entertainment and creative expression through the performing arts of choir and stage. He moved to Alabama as a teenager and was captivated by the beauty of the state’s landscape.
He became interested in photography, and eventually art school. It was in art school that Nelson found his passion for sculpture. He earned a BFA and an M.Ed from the University of Montevallo and has been teaching in the public schools since 1996. His professional career as a sculptor compliments his role as a teacher.
Nelson's piece "Storytime", featured below, won Best in Show at the SCAC 2016 Juried Art Show. You can visit Nelson online at http://www.nelsongriceart.com/
