Inquiries regarding the artists or purchase information may be directed to the North Charleston Cultural Arts Department at Kathleen Sullivan Eckel grew up along the Buffalo Bayou and Memorial Park in Houston, TX, where her curious nature and love for exploring the great outdoors with all of its varied inhabitants began.
During her teens, she worked in an art gallery and switched schools to study art under Houston based artist Henry Gadbois. After getting a bachelor degree in fine art at the University of Texas at Austin, where she specialized in studio art and art education, her odyssey of travel began. During this time she free-lanced in illustration, deed businesses and interiors, managed an art gallery, and took odd jobs to save up money for a year of travel.
She spent the next 18 years traveling in Europe and Africa.
She illustrated and painted on commission, deed clothes and made jewelry, taught art in cultural centers and at the International Schools, and eventually opened her own private art school in Nouakchott. While living in Africa, she developed a style of painting huge, realistic, acrylic finger paintings on wood. Through a fluke of fate a few years ago, she met and was able to study under several well- known artists in Charleston, where she was reunited with the art of oil painting.
She has been painting in oil ever since. One sees the influence of her work in more transparent mediums, as there is a layering, a fine sculpting as depth and image emerge in her paintings. Whether painting the landscape of a mountain range or contours of a face, it is the play of light that continues to fascinate and draw her to a subject. Her style can be described as realistic with a nod towards impressionism. Addelle Sanders was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. In she began making jewelry and belts from leather and reptile skins as a hobby, but that quickly turned into a business.
Eventually she began creating female figurine pins and the response to these creations was so positive that she decided to dedicate her time solely to their de. From there the figurine pins evolved into the magnificent fiber pieces she is known for today.
Along with her partner Ron, Addelle co-founded Fiber Art by Rondelle and together the duo used rich palettes of colorful silk thre and metallic cords to weave intricate patterns to create classics like Ladies Night OutThe Studentand their popular Diva series.
Her work is also featured in the permanent collections of the Schomburg Center in New York. Today, using the cultural influence and natural beauty of South Carolina as her muse, she makes her work available through her new company aptly titled Addelle. Pursuing an art degree while on scholarship at Coker College in Hartsville, SC, she developed a passion for watercolor. After graduation she was employed by the SC Department of Natural Resources as an illustrator and worked for other agencies until After painting for shows on weekends, she became a full-time artist developing her medium and vision.
All of these artists were great inspirations and instilled Rose with a great desire to further develop her skills.
Rose resides in Mount Pleasant, her home and studio located on the marsh. Frequent excursions around the creeks and rivers with her husband and sons, John and Peter, provide unending subject matter fora lifetime of painting pursuits. Becky Taylor and her husband recently retired to Charleston, SC. Originally trained in oils, watercolors have grown to be her passion. She chooses to paint subjects that soothe and renew her spirit as well as those of her viewers. She paints mostly representational art and responds to the moment with pure joy.
Flowers, gardens and landscapes are some of her favorite subjects. She teaches private and group lessons, holds local workshops, and has been an Artist in Residence at several schools in Indiana and Michigan.Beautiful woman of North Charleston South Carolina
