Juanita Barrow and Amy Patterson, after thirty plus years as art educators, are finally able to concentrate on their own art. Both are accomplished ceramic artists and Juanita is also a talented metal fabricator. Now these two women are focusing their creative efforts on two dimensional works.

Juanita and Amy have been friends since meeting in Athens, Georgia in 1977. Their career paths brought them back together in Harris County, Georgia in 1989. They worked together in the same school system until Amy’s retirement in 2007. When Juanita retired in 2010 they decided to get together and pursue painting professionally. Since then they have painted together several days a week; encouraging, motivating and critiquing each other just as they have done for their many students over the years.

Amy Patterson is a retired art teacher and artist. Prior to retirement she worked mostly with ceramics where her love affair with texture translated well into her work with clay. But while completing her Master's Degree in fine arts, her thesis involved a medium with which Amy had little or no prior experience, that of oil painting. This led her to focus her creative endeavors into painting with oils.

Her paintings began as an exploration of the skies and how they were affected by the variety of conditions in the atmosphere due to time of day and weather. As Amy’s interests grew and shifted her paintings included not only the sky but reflections in water and other landscape elements. Her developing style of intense color and textures created through the use of the palette knife became her signature.

Ever searching for new creative courses of endeavor Amy was introduced to R & F oil sticks. She discovered the joy of applying and moving paint around the canvas with these paint sticks and other tools. Over the last few years, her style of painting has become more abstract. Amy's passion for texture has been satisfied by creating marks through the use of tools, such as lace and brayers, and the use of techniques such as layering and sgrafitto. Many of Amy's paintings now involve the investigations of color interactions, intensity and texture. This website contains works that show Amy's growth in style through several stages of creative exploration and stands as a testament to her creative spirit. Amy continues to grow and evolve in her paintings. She is also creating in clay again, where texture is not surprisingly a strong component of her work.

Mrs. Patterson’s paintings have been shown in the Alabama Watercolor Society Exhibit, Georgia Art Education Association Members Exhibit, the Georgia Art Education Association Governor’s Exhibit, University of West Georgia Graduate and Alumni Exhibits, Columbus Artists’ Guild Members Exhibitions, the Georgia National Fair, the National League of American PenWomen Biennial Exhibit in Atlanta, the Bank of America on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Site 109 Gallery in New York, NLAPW Biennial Exhibits in Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC.

  CreatedByJuanita@yahoo.com

Juanita Barrow is a contemporary artist painting in a realistic style. She is very interested in infusing light into her paintings and depicting the way light affects color. Although many of her paintings are landscapes she also enjoys painting horses and other animals.

Juanita received her degree in art education in1975 and her masters in art education in 1980. She spent thirty three years in education mostly as an art teacher. She also worked in ceramics during that time creating sculptural teapots, ocarinas and other utilitarian objects. In the late 1990’s she became interested in jewelry and metals fabrication and pursued those interests as well. She still creates ceramic sculptural objects and does some jewelry fabrication. However Juanita is now returning to her interests in painting and is beginning to paint. She recently entered one of her paintings in the Columbus Artists Guild Members' Exhibit where she won an award as a first exhibitor. She also plans to show work in the upcoming Alumni Exhibit at the University of West Georgia, the Vanderbilt University Medical School's 3rd Annual Art Exhibit in Nashville, Tennesee, and the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Georgia.

Juanita lives near Columbus, Georgia with her husband and pets. Most of the ideas for her paintings come from the surrounding countryside, from their land in Taylor County, Georgia and from her travels. Currently her work can be found online.
