Hugh & Nedra Smith
After receiving a degree from George Washington University with a concentration in Design Nedra spent 22 years as an art director. Eight years ago she began devoting herself full time to developing her skills as a painter.
Having the opportunity to study with some of the best painters in the country has been essential to Nedra's development as an artist.
In addition to studying with Kevin Macpherson she has taken workshops with Scott Christensen, William Schneider, Carolyn Anderson, Roger Dale Brown, Anthony Ryder and William Woodward.
Her style is representational and her goal is to continue honing skills in a broad array of genre; plein air, figural, portrait, still life and studio.
Nedra is a member of the American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, Loudon County Sketch Club, The Rappahannock Association for the Arts and The Community and the Castleton Festival Board of Directors.
