Trellis Payne is a Savannah, Georgia, artist who channels the welcoming spirit of the South into bright, peaceful works of art that add a little happiness to anyone’s collection.
Art is more than just a hobby for Trellis. As soon as the self-described “Southern belle” got her hands on a paintbrush in college, it was love. She started developing her passion on canvas, finding a happy home in abstract art. Soon, that passion became not only a career but a calling. The Dublin, Georgia, native earned a B.F.A. at Valdosta State University, an Art Education Certification from Georgia Southern University and a M.Ed. from Troy University.
Trellis stepped up to help promote public appreciation of art by becoming a high school art teacher in Savannah, where she’s been honing her craft and helping expand young minds since 2002.
When Trellis is not teaching art, she’s making it.
Trellis has a penchant for working with acrylics, watercolors and mixed media. Her work ranges from abstract color FANCY ART WORDs to rustic emblems of Americana and country living to her most recent endeavor, a series of peaches. As Trellis tells it, she’s entered her “peach period,” and now paints the emblematic fruit — a taste of home for anyone who’s ever visited Georgia — in a variety of styles.
