Artist Bios:

Lucy Bureau

Lucy Bureau currently resides in Aiken, SC. She worked for many years in a high-tech NY corporation as a Business Analyst. She is in tune with her creative spirit which provides her with a life balance between information technology and the visual, intuitive side of life. Since she was a child Lucy has always been drawn to textiles. Later in life she developed as a textile artist. She is presently evolving as a pastel artist and enjoys experimenting with different approaches to this medium. Lucy is drawn to nature scenes and images taken when traveling with her husband.

Beth Jones

Beth Jones remembers drawing at an early age, then continuing to create art in high school.  After high school, she created original awards in calligraphy, course covers and illustrations for professional journals during her career at the Medical College of Georgia (now Augusta University).  Along the way she would occasionally paint watercolor pet portraits for her friends. Through the years, magazine articles featuring artists’ painting of their gardens inspired her to seek the life of an artist when she retired.  She has been actively learning and painting with watercolors for the past 16 years.  Her paintings focus on local & regional landscapes with an architectural interest, flowers, still life, and seashells.

Gary Kauffman

Gary Kauffman lived most of his life in Indiana but has been a resident of the Augusta area for 10 years. He took up painting in September 2021 at age 62 and to his surprise discovered he had some talent. Many hours of YouTube videos and a mentor in Waynesboro have helped him hone his talent. He started in acrylics before switching to oils. His primary genres are landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, and flowers.
