Augusta Wilson

I was raised in a creative environment in the Deep South. For as long as I can remember,  proper etiquette and design have been my guides. I am fortunate to have a BFA in painting from the University of Georgia and a MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta. My education has led to a summer in the hills of Cortona, Italy, a love affair with events and marketing, and a visual language that never tires.

I currently reside in Decatur, Georgia with my two young sons. When I'm not painting, I enjoy teaching abstract painting classes for adults (class details here). You can find my paintings throughout the United States, most notably at Huff Harrington Fine Art, Parish, Shuptrine Gallery, Texture BR and Trouve.

I regularly post new paintings to Instagram. You can follow me at @augustawilson.

About My Work

My paintings play with connections—what it means to have a clear path, and adversely what it feels like to forgo the path and discover your surroundings. I’m interested in the emotional journey of our lives; the clarity and the confusion, the balance and instability, and what that looks like on the canvas. Unexpected color palettes, a variety of layers, and imaginative mark-making are my tools of choice to create pieces that allow for each viewer to transport their emotions into the painting and discover something of themselves.
