Helen McKenney is an artist. Not a famous one, and not a professional one, but in her words,"just someone who enjoys painting."
McKenney has always enjoyed art, but as a child she had no formal training other than high school art classes.
Growing up, she lived in several areas of the country - Florida, Delaware and California - then settled in North Augusta in 1964. In the 1980s, she was finally able to pursue her art, taking lessons with local artist Ruth Bridges. She continued studying with her for several years, doing mostly pen-and-ink and acrylics.
