The Parks & Recreation Department is bringing more art to North Myrtle Beach. Artists Everywhere is a monthly art display at City Hall to showcase our local artist’s talent and provide beautiful public displays for our residents and visitors. We are working hard to put together a great line up of local artists varying from painters, to sculptors, to potters, and much more.
The Parks & Recreation Department is proud to present the art created by
Jewel Becker Simmons
My career has included the graphic arts, newspaper and magazine publishing, writing, jewelry making, and teaching. I moved to the Myrtle Beach area in order to create a studio, and devote my life to art.
What I really love is paint. I love to mix it, brush it, scrape it, throw it. Abstract Expressionism was a revelation for me. It allows complete freedom while working on paintings. Connecting that freedom with emotional expression, for me, creates bold lines, vibrant color, and a lot of movement. I feel fearless and I let the painting guide the way to what it will be. Painting is the happiest energy for me.
I have felt a strong connection to Native American culture since I was a child, and many of my paintings reflect that bond.
I hope that you find joy, reflection, and inspiration in these works.
