Barbara Bible "Jake" Carter Wilson

Barbara has had an appreciation of the colors , shapes and beauty around her all of her life. Her earliest memory, at the age of three, was the discovery of tiny flowers blooming along a dirt path where she was born and raised, "up the holler" in the hills of East Tennessee.
Through the years she attended art classes in Connecticut and North Carolina. After moving back to Tennessee in 1999 her love of watercolor accelerated under the teaching of Urban Bird.
She signs her name "Jake" a nickname given her by her father.
Watercolor is a happy part of my life. I love the mystery and excitement of watching a picture come together and especially seeing unexpected, wonderful little things just "happen".
Each day is a brand new splash of color and design. I may not hear the complete dialog but it gives me joy to know that I, at least, am participating in the conversation.
