Sarasota, FL. She worked as a graphic designer and illustrator
for over 27 years before making the transition into fine art full
time. Inspired by her surroundings, she paints the everyday scenes
of her life.
"After moving back home to Spartanburg, SC, having been away for over 30 years, I saw things with a new eye. Now when I travel back to the Lowcountry, I'm able to rediscover things I previously took for granted."
Forbes' is a founding member of the Charleston Outdoor Painters Association (COPA), an exhibiting member of the Charleston Artist's Guild, a board member of the Artists Guild of Spartanburg and is represented by Sandpiper Gallery in Sullivan's Island, SC, and Edward Dare Gallery in Charleston, SC.
