I am predominately self taught. I studied fine art for a year in London and two years of graphic art in Atlanta. My forte is in portraiture but I also paint landscapes , animals, and sculpt in clay.  I work primarily in oils but also use pastels, acrylic, charcoal, and pen and ink.


Deborah is a Lake Lure Artists who works in pastels and acrylics. She especially  likes to represent items with texture or reflections.


At long last I have the opportunity to learn to paint with oils.. I've dabbled in pastels, colored pencil and charcoal years ago. "Lake Lure Artists" have encouraged and helped me along. I've even dared to go large...the Lily Pads are a 30"x 40" oil painting in progress. It's fun! It's great to have artist friends and meet with them twice a month


I have spent most of my adult life with a camera in my hands, but it’s only recently that I’ve begun to manipulate the photos and create the images.  It is only recently I've begun to show my work.


I began my artistic endeavours as a potter but ever the experimenter I began using my kiln for art glass pieces.  I also do watercolor batik.


Autumn Zamzow enjoys painting in acrylic, oil and watercolor on canvass, wood and glass.  Art for Autumn is influenced by her varied interests in subject matter from portraits of needy children to whimsical animals and interesting people. 


Pat Konicki graduated from American Academy of Art and began her career as a graphic designer and illustrator in Chicago.
