“Not far from home is where Isabel finds her inspiration to paint. The local diner, the pizzeria, the church on the corner; the drugstore, the barn, the beach, the forest She notices the sadness, the loneliness, the anticipation and the intent in a gesture, a posture, a face. And that is precisely yet painterly what she brings to the canvas.

Raised in Spartanburg, SC, and recently returned after 30 years away, Isabel draws from a successful career in graphic design and illustration, coupled with a bachelor of fine arts degree from Florida’s Ringling College of Art & Design, to bring her perspective to canvas.” The artist paints full time in a “working studio & gallery” in Spartanburg, SC
