Artist Bio : Brigid Himel

Brigid Himel

Brigid Himel is a life long resident of Thibodaux. She has a degree in Pharmacy and practices part time at Southland Drugs. Brigid has always been interested in the arts: knitting, smocking, french hand sewing to name a few. When her two daughters were grown and away at school, she started drawing lessons and then watercolor classes. She has attended classes with Alvaro Castagnet, Eugene Chisnicean, Lian Zhen, Bev Jozwiak, Robert Gutherie, Linda Baker, Carol Hallock, Elizabeth Blaylock, and Pio Lyons.

Her interests are places that she and her husband Eddie have travelled to and the many subjects in south Louisiana. She enjoys painting in watercolor and has recently discovered the joys of painting in oils too. Brigid feels blessed to have the support of family and friends as she pursues this new endeavor.
