Non-traditional North Carolina painter Cecil Clemons has lived, studied, traveled and painted in the US, Greece, Panama, Egypt, Guatemala, Hawaii, Germany, Puerto Rico, Italy and Israel. Her interests are archeology, anthropology, history, and art.
She says "painting is the joy of my heart, the work of my soul."
Artist M. Douglas Walton, teacher of many hundreds at Louisiana Tech University, once said, "Cecil is the most right brained person I have ever met". Another teacher of hers, Marilyn Hughey Phillis, calls Cecil "one of a kind, a true original". Cecil's formal art education began at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, the Bishop Museum and the Honolulu Academy of Art in Hawaii. She continues to study and learn, experimenting with paints, colors, lines, faces, masks, shapes, and just "getting it right", to a place where each piece is pleasing and interesting. Boring is not her signature!
