Biography


 
Bebe Traylor lives in Watersound, Florida. She is originally from Prattville, Alabama but she and her husband John have lived all over from Monterey to Baltimore to Houston. Most unique, however, was a two year stay they managed on the Aegean Sea in Izmir, Turkey. Of course, their travels are often subjects for Bebe's landscape paintings.

Bebe graduated Cum Laude from the oldest art institute in America, The Maryland Institute College of Art, in Baltimore, Maryland. She also attended The University of Alabama, taking classes with watercolorist, Richard Brough. Bebe studied with Richard Poink at The Art Students League of New York.
 
Professionally, Bebe has worked as a graphic designer in Baltimore, Houston, and Clarksville for the national accounts of Pennzoil, Trane, and Sysco Foods. She has also done regional TV and print advertising for Whataburger and McDonald's restaurants.  Bebe has won numerous awards for her paintings.
