Garnetta Sullivan BOMH Candidate for Board of Directors 2022-2023

Garnetta Sullivan Sedalia, MO

Garnetta Sullivan was raised in Jefferson City, Missouri, where her interest in oil painting began at age 10. She painted her first oil on canvas with the guidance of her soft-spoken artistic grandfather who influenced her life with his art and loving manner. The flame was lit and she began her lifetime devotion to art.

As a young adult, Garnetta moved to Sedalia, Missouri and obtained her bachelor’s degree in commercial art (summa cum laude) from the University of Central Missouri (UCM). She is presently owner of her own design firm, Sullivan Creative, in Sedalia. Garnetta also owns Art Impressions Gallery and Framing located in the historic downtown district of the city.

Garnetta is a Juried BOMH member in several mediums. Her primary focus in the fine art field is oil on canvas. She has received many awards, scholarships and has been juried into national and regional shows. Many of her color schemes, texture and lines she also translates into warm glass creations.  Garnetta is also an accomplished photographer. She uses her photographs as reference material for paintings, but sometimes she feels her photograph communicates the image so strongly the brush could not improve it. As a commercial artist, she creates outstanding designs for logos, brochures, websites, advertising, business cards, postcards, banners and more.

Garnetta’s paintings, photography and glass can be found in many private and corporate collections across the country. She feels the best is yet to come and continues to spark the flame of creativity in everything she does.
