Nan Cunningham
An Alabama native, Nan Cunningham started her artistic career under the mulberry tree as a child. She made dyes from berries and nuts and began painting right away. She never stopped and has been a fulltime painter ever since. A superb colorist, Cunningham uses her loose painterly style on a wide range of subjects, gathering numerous awards and honors along the way. She currently serves on the Board of the Alabama Art Colony and was previously a Board Member of the Mississippi Art Colony as well as the Montgomery Arts Council. An Auburn University graduate and faculty member of Arrowmont School in Tennessee, John C. Campbell in North Carolina and The Alabama Education Center, Cunningham is in high demand for her creative workshops and expressive presentations. She happily shares the knowledge gathered in over 50 years before the easel and judges art competitions throughout the region. Jean Cocteau expressed Nan's philosophy nicely: "Art is not a pastime but a priesthood." Nan's work has been featured in many magazines and publications including Southern Living, Veranda, Society South, Prime, Southern Accents and House Beautiful. She has won numerous awards and is represented in corporate and private collections throughout the world. Nan lives in Auburn, Alabama with her Italian Peacock Hound, Renzo Piano where she paints every day. Although they have chosen other professions, both of her children are talented artists as well.
