June 2012 Grand Strand Artist of the Month: Gwen Mis

 

 

The June 2012 Grand Strand Artist of the Month is Gwen Mis. Join us for her opening reception on Saturday, June 2, 2012 from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Fresh Brewed Coffee House, which is located at 933 Broadway Street in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach.

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.
