Description The allure and lore of Okefenokee, has inspired movie makers, novelists, artists, and storytellers alike. A favorite monster, The Creature of the Black Lagoon was reportedly inspired by visits to the Okefenokee. In the past, swamps have been portrayed as gloomy, dismal, foreboding and mysterious places to fear and avoid. Now days a lot of us have evolved beyond misconceptions, to possess an enlightened understanding of what a swamp is and does. Certain mysterious attributes may be appreciated as sublimely unique, unusual and highly enchanting. Historically, man journeyed to the desert, the mountains or the sea, for inspiration to seek answers. Mankind just may have overlooked this primordial nexus, the nursery of life on our planet. Numerous extraordinary events have occurred and continually seem to pop up in and around the Okefenokee.http://www.okefenokee.com/okefenokee_xfiles.html
Ginette Callaway, Lovejoy Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement My main body of work consists of my Original Paintings in Oil & Watercolor and some Acrylics. You will also find modern graphic designs and abstract art. Before picking up the brush and getting myself messy with paint, my ultimate passion, I worked in graphic designs. On occasion I still like to sit in my design studio using my graphics software to create, it's a whole different approach. I incorporate parts of my original paintings or alter them to get something totally different.
I was born in Alsace France and from childhood on, I had Art and a Love for Nature and beauty in my blood. In my younger years I traveled and saw a bit of the world. After moving to the Unites States I became a full time artist with collectors from all over the world.
My website for original paintings is ginettecallaway.com
