Gwen is a native of Atlanta and has a BA degree in Psychology from Georgia State University. She is the mother of two and the grandmother of five and is retired from a 35 year real estate career.
Throughout her life, Gwen has always been involved in artistic endeavors, including a ladies designer belt company and a painted furniture business, but she had never considered herself an “artist”. Fortunately, eight years ago, Gwen had the opportunity to study oil painting from the very talented local artist, Kristopher Meadows. “A passion for painting has become one of the most rewarding phases in my life!” She also has taken studio and en plein aire workshops from artists in Atlanta and all over the country.
Gwen prefers to paint in oil, but occasionally uses acrylic medium. She paints a wide variety of subject matter including landscapes, animals, still life, abstracts and some figurative works.
