Woman's nature art a beauty to behold

August 10, 2018 06:39 PM

If you don't live near a body of water or get to behold the beauty of nature, an area woman might be able to help you. Her portraits of nature are quite simply a sight to behold.

Since she was a little girl in her native Jamaica, Takeyce Walter has had a creative side. She drew faces, made paper dolls and sold them.

She continued sketching and drawing in high school and college, but had no formal education in art. Then, she was gifted a box of pastels and it changed her outlook on art.

She would move to New York and become married with children. Her art was then put on the back burner, but that need to be creative never left her.

So, in 2005 she decided to try and paint landscapes. First, in Round Lake where she lives, then visiting a place where Mother Nature's beauty abounds -- the Adirondacks.
