ABOUT THE ARTIST
Barbara Quigley has been one of the Mississippi Gulf Coast's favorite watercolorists since 1950. Noted for her vivid seascapes, Quigley is the finest at capturing the essence of the coastal life. Her paintings epitomize both the mellow mood of the lazy southern coastal region and the motion and life of the powerful gulf waters. Since 1995, Quigley has made her home in the beautiful Mountain country of Ashville, N.C. She continues to paint and teaches watercolor at the University of North Carolina at Ashville.
