Featured Artist Bio

    Jacquelyn Ris  As a kid, my family moved around a lot and we lived abroad for many years. For the four years we were in Germany, I saw many breathtaking pieces of art, including those being made in front of crowds by street artists and those embedded in age-old architecture. Though it wasn't these masterpieces that inspired me to start painting, it was my sisters elaborate stick figure drawings. Eventually, I moved from landscapes into realistic portraiture, working on larger and larger scales as I advanced through my art classes in school. Only in the past year have I taken to the idea of working on pieces of art two stories high. More than anything the experience has been a fun ride and a good side project next to my newfound career in cinema.

I love what you folks are doing. Several years ago we went to Exeter California to see their Mural trail. We spent hours in this little town looking at the murals and trying to find the hidden objects in each. We talked with the towns people, had lunch, shopped in the shops. I love the mural trails, and yours is going to be one of the best. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Art is everywhere in Asheville! This gorgeous mural of Dolly Parton by Gus Cutty is the newest mural you'll see in town. Gus created the mural with spray paint in 3 days. See it for yourself at Beauty Parade on Haywood Rd in West Asheville.

Love your mural artwork! The local references, the depiction of marvelous, beautiful, and colorful nature - landscapes, birds, animals, butterflies, and glorious flowers - invites close study and is very engaging!
