Strange Alabama- Jimmie Lee Sudduth
Jimmie Lee Sudduth is a folk artist from Fayette, Alabama who gained international attention due to his interesting techniques.
Sudduth began experimenting with art when he just three years old. While taking a stroll through the woods one day, the youngster decided to draw a face on a tree stump using mud and honey as paint. Sudduth was shocked to find that the face was still plastered on the tree days later, thus sparking his desire to become an artist.
Although Sudduth died in 2007, his works are still receiving high praise today because of his interesting use of natural materials. Coffee grounds, tobacco, turnip greens, and berries are just a handful of things Sudduth took advantage of in order to create his masterpieces.
