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 SPRING SALE All Prices have been reduced.
I am an independent, self supporting artist, working full time on my art. Full time means about on average 12 hours a day seven days a week. I have not had a non working vacation in over 10 year. Luckily I love painting, I love art, I love what I do. I also have three rescue cats, one is chronically ill and has to be hand nourished three to five times a day. I live every day as if it is my last. Art and creating is a release for me. On my blank canvas or paper, I can create any world I like. Thank you for purchasing my art.

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.
