Bobie was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and raised in Laurel Missippi. She has deep Southern roots and is quite proud to be a “Southern Belle”. She graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Fine Arts, having studied art history, technique, design and composition. Her formal training taught her a lot, but her Grandmother is the source of her love for art and nature. Planting and admiring the results created a childlike wonder for Bobie. Her Grandmother used the inspiration of nature and its spectacular colors to create beautiful pottery. This in turn inspired her to a love of photography. Bobie says of her work: “I want to be close; I want you to be close. I want you to be part of the image, part of nature so you can feel it, smell it and be in awe of it too.” Her work has shown in many juried fine art shows and in galleries, and her pieces can be found in homes all over the country and beyond.
