June Artist of the Month: Gwen Mis
Presented by Fresh Brewed Coffee House, Weekly Surge, & Grand Strand Happening
Opening Reception Saturday – June 2, 2012
Starts at 4pm -7pm
Bio: I’m originally from Wilmington, Delaware. In 1996, I moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I attended Coastal Carolina University where I studied Marine Science and Nutrition. A lover of drawing and painting since childhood, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I decided to pursue art.
I credit my inspiration and motivation to my many artist friends along the Grand Strand. One day I decided to pick up a brush and join in, and I’ve been painting ever since. I love to paint anything from wildlife to fantasy-like pieces. Whatever I feel moved by during that particular session is what I will paint.
I feel truly blessed to have come to this point, and I hope to keep going for I have found in art a true happiness.
