Jeri Ledbetter received her BFA from Memphis College of Art and been featured in exhibitions locally and throughout the nation. She describes her artistic process in this manner: "Living on the Mississippi River, I find nature's oddities compelling and inspiring. Rather than paint a realistic landscape or figure I paint the surface much like wind and water toil against the works of man, i.e., by slow erosion, accretion and erasure. I let the involuntary or free hand not be unduly controlled by my plan or scheme, allowing for the blessing of the unexpected line or stroke."
