J and H Decorative Painting
I’m happy to be a part of the Artisans Gallery.
My interest in Decorative Painting began 25 years ago in Vermont. I was fortunate to find the Azalea Coast Decorative Painters when we moved to St. James in 2005 and have painted with them ever since. Most of my work is in acrylics, although I have worked with both watercolors and colored pencils.
Fortunately, my husband, Hank, is interested in woodcrafting, so he’s been creating some of the wooden surfaces on which I paint. Over time, he’s become involved in sealing, sanding, and base coating many of those objects. He’s a huge help.
I enjoy watching a piece come to life as it’s painted, shaded, highlighted and embellished. Some of the pieces are whimsical, some are practical, but they’re all fun to create.
