Tennessee artist Suzanne LeBeau is known locally as a muralist. She has been an elementary school teacher for most of her adult life, but recently has felt a calling to get back to her creative side. She took up faux finishing about 4 years ago and specializes in metallic finishes, plasters, and murals. Lately, she has taken those skills and applied them to the canvas.
The other series is called “affirmations.” Every time the viewers see the painting, they are supposed to remind themselves of the joy of living. “So many people are stressed out because they keep repeating negative thoughts about themselves. If they would replace those with positive thoughts, their whole life could turn around. Mine did!”
Suzanne is the secretary for the Murfreesboro Art League. She has a website "Ponderings" http://suzannelebeauartist.blogspot.com/ where you can see more of her work and writing.
