Atlanta based artist, Sallie Ritter Smith, began painting as an adult. She has studied for over a decade with prominent American artists in workshops, in classrooms, and en plein air. Frequently found in her studio, Sallie predominantly uses oil paints as she is drawn to their rich colors and textures. She began her study using watercolor paints and still uses them when she wants to enjoy the free-flowing expressiveness of the medium. Sallie was raised in Albany, Georgia and received an Industrial Engineering degree from Georgia Institute of Technology.  Sallie retired early from a career in the tech industry to pursue her love of art. Her family camped around the country each summer of her youth where she encountered America’s beautiful vistas and wildlife. She discovered a love of nature with its constant surprises and play of light. Sallie endeavors to share what she sees and feels through her art. Sallie is a juried member of the Atlanta Artists Center.   She has been selected to participate in many group and juried exhibitions and has won numerous awards for her work. Sallie is grateful that she has had the opportunity to learn from some of the most successful artists in the nation.  Her paintings can be found in private collections across the country.
