Born in Nashville TN with Down Syndrome, Bernadette has become well known in the art community worldwide. Her exposure to the art world and culture started as a child attending as many art galleries, museums, concert halls and plays as her time would allow. From an early age she was encouraged to draw and color in her own style as a form of expression and therapy. This has resulted in a body of work which documents an artist developing a unique style entirely her own. With an artist grandmother and a mother fully committed to allowing her to use this medium of self expression for as far as she would care to take it, Bernadette now exhibits in numerous art galleries, art and craft shows throughout south east and attends many conventions throughout the United States showing and selling her work.

Thursday morning my parents picked me up and we went to TPAC to set up my exhibit. This is a solo show and it really does look nice. I took 17 of my giclees and hung most of them on the wall, but put a few in a cabinet. All of my paintings are colorful so this exhibit will really stand out. Here are some of the giclees that I took for this exhibit.
The Barn The Bathing Beauty
Beauty and the Shoe The Indulging Strawberry
Sunset on the Keys Summer Radiance
Go to my website and look around. You can see more of my paintings.
