Thank you so much for stopping by. I want to welcome you to Legacy Arts, where painting is my passion! I am a self taught artist. Blessed with a natural born talent for creating art. I come from a very rich heritage of artistic personalities therefore I take absolutely no credit what so ever for any artistic ability that I may have, I give all the credit to God and genetics! I want to give special thanks to my late Mother, Marilyn Garmony Smith, "a beautiful and talented poet in her own right", for all her love and support throughout the years! So in honor of my beautiful Mother "Legacy Arts" was born.
I love to paint and live to paint.... For me painting is a way of staying in touch with my inner child.. I am a self taught and self representing artist. I started painting several years ago. My first canvas was childrens furniture. I sold pieces through the local art market and baby boutiques. Then through the art market, I started getting request for mural work, so from that point my art started to take another avenue,I started doing more mural work and less furniture. Although at times I miss painting childrens furniture, I still have an absolute wonderful time everytime I pick up my brush! I have painted murals in several different states, what better way to have fun "than to draw and paint on walls" inner-child at work again. But anyway...I hope you enjoy your art as much as I have enjoyed creating it! Take care, Live,Love,Laugh and Throw Some Paint On The Wall!......
I have canvas art through-out the United States, Australia, Canada and Germany..
