My name is Darlene Sudderth. I’m a life long resident of Forsyth County. I love to paint, create all kinds of crafts, and write short stories of life long ago from old stories my father used to tell me when I was a child. I’m a mother of 4 and grandmother of 11. I attended Forsyth County High School and started my love of painting there. I’ve always loved to draw and as a child drew on everything….including an old white car we had. Daddy allowed me to draw Betty and Veronica from the Archie comic books on the back truck hood!! Big fun!!! My formal training began in front of my T.V. set with the legendary two… “Bob Ross and Bill Alexander.” I painted along with these two wonderful artists  and then gave up painting when my children came along. After that, I mostly just dabbled now and then and drew things for the kids and grandkids for school until my son asked me to do a portrait of his wife. That was 5 years ago. I’ve been painting strong from that time on. I have furthered my education in photo realistic painting with artist Michael James Smith from the U.K. I love painting realistic landscapes and doing portraiture. I also enjoy rendering realistic pastel paintings of animals and people.  I am still currently furthering my education with the Michael James Smith Art School and hope to pass along what I’ve learned to other budding artists to enjoy and learn from.
