Drawings & Paintings


Lolette Sudaka Guthrie Raised in a household filled with art, I have been painting for as long as I can remember. My father was a fine artist and commercial illustrator and my earliest memories are of standing beside him at his easel watching him work and asking questions, and of “working” near him. He often asked for my advice, seemed to take whatever I had to say seriously and urged me to explore my own artistic interests, however, he actively discouraged me from pursuing art as a career. I, therefore, majored in psychology and art history in college and worked for many years as an elementary school teacher but I never stopped drawing and painting. Eventually, I returned to school to study art and received a BS in drawing and painting from the University of Wisconsin in 1984.

Prior to moving to North Carolina in 2004, I exhibited widely in both juried and invitational exhibitions in Wisconsin, Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland and Georgia including such prestigious galleries as the University of Wisconsin, The Milwaukee Museum of Art’s Bradley Gallery, the Cardinal Gallery of Art, Annapolis, MD and the Goodyear Cottage Art Gallery, Jekyll Island, GA. I was also Artist in Residence at Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia for 8 years where I was fortunate to have had several solo shows.

I now live in Chapel Hill, NC where I maintain a studio in my home. Since moving to North Carolina, I have been exhibited in galleries in Apex, Brevard, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Greensboro, Ocracoke and Raleigh.
