Three prints, signed and numbered by Memphis T. Mississippi.
$25 each.


About the artist ...In the early 1980s, a local artist certainly made a name for herself -- literally -- by calling herself Memphis T. Mississippi. The "T" stood for Tennessee. Not only did her watercolors focus almost exclusively on Mississippi River themes and images, she even designed and wore bright-colored, flowing gowns with patterns that suggested waves and river currents. When she wasn't painting, she worked as a docent for the Mississippi River Museum on Mud Island.
In the late 1980s, Memphis married and moved away. The Lighthouse Gallery in Bartlett still displays and sells her paintings featuring Tom Lee Park, the river bluffs, and the Mississippi that she found so fascinating. She moved to Russia for a few years then returned to the U.S., and she and her husband, are now living in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio -- hundreds of miles from the river she loved so much.
