Marion Malone: “While waiting for my first child to be born, I took my first art course that summer. Art was soon put aside for family. Two decades later, I took drawing classes. That stopped in favor of career and travel. Years later I found art classes in Continuing Education, at a local high school in Naples, Florida, where I lived at the time. Eventually, I found a Watercolor class and haven’t stopped yet, continuing after my move to Memphis. It has been a journey of constant discovery and learning and wonderful friendships.”
Jacqueline Miller Foshee: “Before I started painting, I enjoyed another career that also provided a creative outlet. I have always loved needlework and collected vintage clothing and antique lace. From that clothing and lace, I designed and made beautiful garments: lace jackets, wedding and graduation dresses, christening gowns and pillows. My creations sold in shops in Memphis, Seattle and Atlanta. It was so very rewarding that I put aside my desire to paint, until, finally, I told myself to “quit” and go for it. I found a wonderful teacher and mentor in Fred Rawlinson, who I studied with for many years. I must add that I lost my dearest friend and wonderful husband in April of 2021. My wonderful, loving family, my friends and my art have been my salvation.”
Anna Parker began reapplying her love of art by using her now favorite medium, watercolor. She began taking formal classes from well-renowned Memphis Watercolor Artist, Fred Rawlinson in 2018. Through his teaching techniques, Anna has evolved into a pointillist painter of landscapes and abstracts, using bright and bold colors. Once again she is a student to learn and expand her passion for art.
