Meet the Artist FORREST FORTIERForrest Fortier resides in South Carolina and adopted it as her home in 1995. She obtained her nursing degree from Penn State University and a masters in training and development from St. Francis University. She has always been creative, artistic and an out of the box thinker as she helped others develop nursing skills throughout her career.
Forrest’s love of art began with her great grandmother, Ann Marie Brown, who was a professional artist. As a hobby, Forrest began painting and learned various techniques in watercolor, acrylics, oil and mixed media with a variety of subject matters. It soon became evident to Forrest and her family that she has artistic talents that should be developed further. She began taking classes and workshops in 2014 to develop the talent. She is learning a lot on this journey and enjoys seeing the excitement that a new piece brings to a person when they see it for the first time.
