Georgia on My Mind by Ingrid Bolton.
Ingrid’s paintings represent her visual and emotional memories that are interpretive of the very moment of inspiration in her unique artistic ways. Her works encompass subject matters such as landscapes, flowers, animals or architecture. She expresses her recollections with bold and rich colors that convey vitality, vibrancy and life.
With the approach of her “Golden Years”, Ingrid seized this perfect opportunity to finally fully concentrate and nurture her life-long longings for art and being creative. She returned to school and in 2002 earning a Bachelor's Degree, Fine Arts Major, from North Georgia College and State University. She continuously furthers her knowledge and skills and has taken many workshops with nationally known top master painters here in the US, as well as abroad.
Born and reared in Germany, she came to the US in 1966. After moving many times, within US states as well as living overseas, she now feels well-rooted in the State of Georgia where she has lived since 1989.
Her paintings have been accepted in various juried Atlanta area exhibits and have won awards. They are part of private collections in many US States, Canada, England, Italy and Germany as well as in local public venues.

Recent Works by Christie Gregory
Georgia-based artist Christie Gregory uses layers of paint on canvas and paper to express her love of color and texture, nature and animals, and the subtle ways unexpected color combinations, shapes, and lines move us. An intuitive approach to painting inspires her, and she’s best known for her contemporary florals and playful paintings of birds.
Christie was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, and received a Bachelors degree in studio art from Peabody College. After graduating, an interest in advertising brought her to Atlanta where she had a successful career as an art director and designer, and in 2017, she opened her studio and began to focus on painting full-time. Her academic training leaned mostly toward classical and representational, but now she is more excited by the accidental forms and textures that emerge when a painting is started with no specific direction in mind, other than an idea of colors and gestures, a particular emotion, or an inspiring piece of music.
Christie currently lives in Gainesville, Georgia with her husband, Bob, and their two dogs. She is a member of the Atlanta Artist Collective and is involved in Gainesville’s Vision 2030 Public Arts initiative.
