At the age of 45, Jill Troutman decided to quit her job in the beauty business and pursue art as a full-time career.  She attended art schools in New York, France and Italy and then applied her marketing skills to become a successful artist.  Troutman has exhibited her work nationally and has licensed her images, which have been sold in Bloomingdales and national gift catalogs including Plow and Hearth and Lillian Vernon.  Having taught for many years, Troutman's students have had celebrated art careers and continue to credit heir successes as an artist to her teachings and mentoring.

Kathy Alderman and Elaine Pelkey-Herrick

Find out how the love of nature has inspired artists Kathy Alderman and Elaine Pelkey-Herrick paintings.  Alderman is originally from Alamance County, though spent half her youth living by the shore on Oak Island.  Memories of her life by the sea inspire her art ever as much as the beautiful hills and valleys of her current home in rural North Carolina.  Currently a resident of Burlington, Pelkey-Herrick started painting with oils at sixteen living in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.  Being a self taught artist she has earned the respect of many of her peers.  Pelkey-Herrick's favorite subjects relate to landscapes, seascapes, flowers, pet portraits, wildlife and abstracts.
