|Coral Rose by Lisa Young|
Since I was very young I always loved painting, drawing and anything to do with art. I've never had any formal art training so what I do is all self taught. Eventually my interest and love of creating art became one of my passions, and I am so grateful that it happened that way. With the support and encouragement of dear friends I decided to pursue my passion and develop my skills to the next level. Although I'm still learning and developing my skills I'm happy to show you Young Heirloom Fine Art. - Lisa Young
Barbara McMahen Rushing loves color and enjoys trying to paint the effect of light. Art is a fantastic activity!!!
After a long, varied and satisfying career in education, I retired, content with what I had accomplished and eager to explore other facets of life that I had put on hold for so many years. Freed from the constraints of daily work responsibilities, and joined in pursuits of an artistic nature by my supportive photographer husband, we are able to travel some and life is great.
As I have discovered in all the other phases of my life, the more one learns, the more there is to learn, and that is what I am about: reading, listening, observing, going to workshops and demonstrations, experimenting, stretching, failing, reevaluating, and sometimes, to my delight, succeeding. Although I have no formal art education, I have enjoyed study with many nationally known artists in watercolor and pastel.
