About the Artist

Libby Anderson is a former elementary art teacher who taught in schools in Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. She received her B.F.A and education certificate at Mississippi University for Women but says most of her painting education comes from numerous workshops from professional artists around the country that she has attended from San Francisco to Florida to New York. Her first medium was watercolor but has since transitioned back to oil painting.
She has had work in numerous local group shows and has had solo shows at Botanic Garden in the past. Her work is in a gallery in the Napa region of California currently. She has been selling work online recently and doing commission work in her home studio in Collierville, TN.
Andie Blevins is an artist who loves animals and nature. This affection keeps her trying new ways to illustrate their beauty and playfulness. She has been married to Thomas for 33 years and they recently moved to East Tennessee.
Artist Wayne Carpenter is from Corinth, Mississippi, but has resided in one end of the state to the other. He served in the U S Army in Germany and Vietnam. Wayne and his wife Sherry moved from Jackson, Mississippi to Germantown, Tennessee, in 2001. Educated at Millsaps College (MBA) and The University of Mississippi School of Liberal Arts and School of Pharmacy, Wayne has retired from Hospital Pharmacy Management and Health Care Consulting. Although he has enjoyed painting through the years, retirement gives him more time for his favorite hobby. By far, watercolor is his favorite medium. Many of his watercolors are available as numbered and signed prints (professionally prepared on archival rag paper). In the 1970’s Wayne began carving decoys and shorebirds. His latest project is a life-size Brown Pelican in breeding plumage. At the 2019 Louisiana Wildfowl Carvers and Collectors Guild competition, Wayne captured two first place and one-second place Best of Category; and Second and Third Best of Show in the Novice category.
Wayne is a member of the Artist Group of Memphis and LA Wildfowl Carvers Guild.
Sherry Lane T. Carpenter
Artist Sherry is a native Mississippian and moved with her husband Wayne to Germantown, TN, in 2001 from Jackson, Mississippi. She has enjoyed painting with watercolors, acrylic and oils for many years. The styles she paints range widely from realistic botanicals, landscapes and birds to the very whimsical cats, dogs, birds and rabbits; or whatever strikes her fancy. The signature she uses on the painted artwork is “Shane.” Photography is another interest that has intrigued her through the years, by capturing everyday scenes, children, animals, flowers and special objects (all to conserve memories as the years go by). Sherry’s photographs are professionally printed on archival rag paper and are numbered and signed with her full name. She finds it such a joy to see and preserve the world around us with art.
Sherry is a member of the Artist Group of Memphis.
