About the Author & Artist. Arlene Wright-Correll (1935- ___), popular American award winning Artist, published author, columnist, & art instructor, at the age of 68, decided to pick up her paint brushes again after 54 years and paint, in mostly gouache watercolors and pastels, the flowers, herbs and fruits that grow at Home Farm Herbery in Munfordville, KY. Though she paints in all mediums, she likes to use the Gouache paints, which are a heavy, opaque watercolor paint, sometimes called body color, producing a less wet-appearing and more strongly colored picture than ordinary watercolor. Occasionally, she will paint something from her world travels especially of Scotland, Ireland, or the Mediterranean. She is fond of those old memories. She is the resident artist and workshop instructor at AvalonStainedGlassSchool. She is a Certified EBSQ artist. Ms. Wright-Correll is the creator and writer of Who’s Who in Arts and Crafts©, author of numerous published books, over 300 published articles, winner of many organic gardening writing contests and a member of KAHT. She is also a China & Porcelain painter, Stained Glass Artisan, Sandblasting and glass etching artist, works in Fused Glass and Encaustic Art. She is one of the six KY Artists who worked 6 months to create the dolls for Journey Jots in 2006.
