Jimmie Lee Sudduth

Jimmie Lee Sudduth's (1910-2007) earliest memories are of painting a picture at the age of three. The son of an Indian "medicine lady," he recalls painting with a mud and honey mixture on the surface of a freshly cut tree stump while he and his mother were in the woods looking for medicine plants. When they returned days later, the painting was still there, and his mother saw this as a sign that Sudduth should paint. Today, Sudduth is regarded as one of the most prominent folk artists from the South.
