Biography


An Alabama gulf coast native, Celine Meador began her writing and photography career as a reporter for a Florida daily newspaper where she developed a love not only for taking pictures, but the creative magic of darkroom work.  As a photojournalist, and later a corporate communications director, she received many professional awards including Who’s Who Among American Women. Later, in the Cayman Islands as a magazine photographer, she soon began an entirely new career as managing partner of a well known scuba diving resort catering to underwater photographers. Fascinated with the beauty and brilliant color of the underwater, Celine logged hundreds of Caribbean dives with her Nikonos Camera in hand and  founded a publishing company reproducing fine paintings of underwater and other tropical subjects. A prolific painter, photographer and writer,  she brings together much of what she enjoys into her work.
 
Having spent much of her life on the water, Celine's acrylic and water color paintings reflect the palette of sun and sea and sky. Even when she focuses on other subjects, her  paintings almost always include some aspect of the sea she loves. Her very favorites are large canvases that simply show the sea itself.

The author of several books available online and in bookstores, Celine authors a line of poetic prints and greeting cards whicn may be found in  galleries and gift shops. She is the founding member and owner of Fine + Folk Art Carolina Gallery and of The Mebane Downtown Table Restaurant located in Historic Downtown Mebane, NC.
