Art Gallery

Artist Statement:

Sue has been a resident of Smyrna, Georgia for 18 years. In the past few years, she has developed a popular portfolio of watercolors of local Smyrna historic sites, as well as landscapes of travels from both her friends and herself. These images are available in prints - as well as decorative household items such as coffee mugs, trivets, and coasters.

Sue has maintained a passion for art and music throughout her life - she has focused in the areas of drawing, painting and photography, as well as being an avid piano player. She studied part-time at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC and participated in several printmaking shows there. She enjoys creating images that invoke a warm, emotional connection for the viewer. Her pastel work has won awards in Foley, Alabama, and Covington, Georgia. Sue's work is on display at Mezza Luna Pasta and Seafood Restaurant, as well as available for sale at The Nest Home and Garden - both of which are in Smyrna, Georgia.

Artist Statement:

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Worked in corporate world as first career. Met with a Life Coach to begin a shift - a new career - a real career - doing what I was meant to do and what I believed I'd enjoy doing. I have chosen the ability to paint ideas that come my way and turn it into my life work.

I've discovered one constant fact about human nature - people enjoy looking at art, discussing art, and choosing art of their choice. People enjoy one of a kind piece of art to take home and view every day. I am still amazed how customers and shoppers and first timers take time from their day to visit an art festival or an art exhibit to observe and enjoy the crazy things artists produce.

I am a Southerner and have raised 3 sons. I am self taught as a painter because I jumped in with both feet to meet my new career head-on. I embarked on a career painting only what fascinates me. From St. Francis to Princess Leia . I enjoy being around some fellow artists that are beyond fabulous thinkers and painters. I am amazed I am in the same shows and galleries with painters I admire.

You can contact me by e-mail at or snail mail 475 East Main St #229, Cartersville, GA 30121.

Artist Statement:

Steve Stoichev's passion for creating art appearing recognized in a very early age. He was only 4 years old when he desperately clay figurines for his first exhibit.

Steve was born in Sliven, Bulgaria, EU, a very picturesque city with rich cultural life and traditions. He is multimedia artist. Self taught in many aspects, he developed a very distinctive style in any of his art creations. As a fashion designer he developed a company in high fashion for years in Europe. It was a very creative investment full with much success.

He's worked with textile design, sculpture and he is most recognized impressionism. Steve developed a technique of painting to be a joy for the eye and to be touched if the audience is disable to see . He thinks it is not fair that sometimes art cannot be accessible to everyone.

Steve exhibits in two continents and his art is displayed in private and business places. He has lived in Smyrna since 1998 with his wife and three children.
