Stacy C. Bottoms
Artist and Teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina
I started painting at a young age after visiting an art museum for painting lessons. After high school I joined the Marines for tuition and I became a rifle range coach. That is when I realized how much I enjoyed teaching.
Years later I completed my M.A. in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. The Hickory Museum of Art has exhibited my paintings and I exhibit my art online.
When I reflect on my work, I realize that being an artist is a blessing. I enjoy the painting process and I want to thank those who have purchased my originals and prints over the years. Painting really is like keeping a diary and I have a story behind every painting. I’ve also learned that having my art exhibited in a museum was nice but the internet can exhibit your art globally.
I enjoy sharing what I've learned using oil, acrylics,watercolors, pastels, ink, and pencil. For those wanting to improve as an artist I teach individual and group workshops. Feel free to email me your questions or comments. Visit my store to see original paintings and prints.
