J. Kim Sessums
What do Billy Graham, Andrew Wyeth, and Eudora Welty have in common? Kim Sessums. Kim Sessums has an interesting approach to his art. He first engages in old-fashioned correspondence with his portrait subjects, typically people whom he greatly admires. The thread of correspondence and conversation informs the end result as much as does his artistic skill. It didn't seem to do him justice just to show his art as beautiful as it was. The collection of correspondence with his subjects is just fascinating as he has truly lived "a life of art and letters."
