Millie Gosch is an avid plein air painter who paints studies from real life and from these studies, she creates her beautiful landscape pieces. An experienced artist, she has worked for over 25 years as a professional artist using oil as her medium and working with a limited palette. Growing up in a small Georgia town, she developed a deep love for the Southland and nature in general. Her favorite subjects are the lowcountry and pastoral scenes. She also paints vibrant still life that gives viewers a new look at the color and shape of the everyday things around them.
Jim grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. He received his Bachelor’s Degree at Auburn University and his MBA from Vanderbilt University. Jim has enjoyed a very successful professional career holding high level executive positions. He is the current President and Founder of Davis & Associates, a management consulting firm specializing in operations, marketing, finance, personnel and general consulting.
As far as photography is concerned in general, it has been a hobby since Jim worked extensively with a number of high level advertising agencies. “Layout, design, images, etc., have always been important in marketing and for advertising clients,” he says, “and that continued to be true after I started my consulting company.”
Jim has been asked to work for several African travel and tourist companies as well as the Tanzanian government in tourism, and animal photos are certainly a part of those projects. His initial trip involved just learning about animals and the African “landscape” (which includes colors, topography, etc.). Jim has subsequently been to Africa often for both pleasure and photography business. His latest photo clients include the BBC in London.

Silvia Garcia-Carreras Feenaghty, a native of the island of Cuba, has lived in Georgia since 1961 and in Peachtree City since 1969. She started painting as a teenager, with training in Ottawa, Canada, and later in her native Cuba while acquiring a Home Economics degree with a Minor in Arts. She has attended classes in the past with many local and national artists but had set aside her brushes for a period of at least 20 years while her children were growing and later on while working in her husband’s accounting firm.
Silvia took up her art again after retirement, and refined her craft under the guidance of well-known, accomplished, and award winning artists: the late Tom Powers in Newnan, GA; Pam Hardin in Tyrone, GA; the late Helen Hayes in Newnan, GA; and Marlin Adams in Barnesville, GA. After having con- centrated her efforts as an Oil painter, Silvia is now experi- menting with Oil Pastels. Many of Silvia’s paintings grace the homes of art patrons throughout the USA, Europe, Mexico and South America.
“I love to paint, and my inspiration is the world at large, God’s creation. In my travels, I take photos, and they become the basis of my paintings.”
