"I work to develop paintings that make people question their purpose. I do not only want to capture an image but create a story for the viewer to seek out. I am a native Biloxian and have been painting on the Gulfcoast for many years. I received my B.F.A from Mississippi College for Women and MEd. from William Carey College. I taught 30 years art in grades K- college. I have served as an educator at the Ohr-O’Okeefe Museum of art and the Walter Anderson museum. Currently a board member of the Mississippi Art Colony and President of the South Mississippi Art League."
The Little Yellow Building is the creative art studio of Mississippi artist Derek Covington Smith. TLYB was established in 2018 to help grow and promote visual art in the state through opportunity, exposure, and education.
