I’m a self-taught artist; constantly looking for new ways to express my creativity.  If you would like to know more and join this exhibit, please let us know and come by the gallery and pick up a plate to work on.  Originally photographing nature, a new interest involves creating, fun, joyful images directly from the computer.  Free and open to the public.  I’ve discovered through my photography that creating art brings me joy and I’m truly blessed to be able to do what I love.  The Arts in Bartlett Artist Group will meet on Tuesday, September 15, 7:00 – 9:00pm at the Arts Center Community Room , 215 S.  There’s a loose, free feel to the images because I use my non-dominant hand when painting them.
