Artist's Website Art by Candy Prather
Candy Prather and her wonderfully supportive husband, R.A., are native Texans who have raised three children together and are now enjoying an abundance of grandchildren. In her spare time, Candy can be found in her small home studio in Rockwall doing one of her favorite things - painting.

Candy credits her development as an artist to her apprenticeship to a well-known commercial artist and the local classes and workshops she has taken for her creative and artistic growth. She has exhibited locally at the Texas Roast, Candlelight & Lampposts, The Hilton Bella Harbor Fine Art Gallery, Wylie Art Gallery, and Rockwall Art League's Annual Fall Art Show/Sale in 2007 - 2009. Candy enjoys her membership with the Rockwall Art League.

A variety of mediums - pencil, pastels, charcoal - were used when Candy first began her journey into the visual arts in 2003. A few years later, she discovered oils and has never looked back. "Creating paintings that speak to the heart" is her life's ambition. Candy's work is a reflection of her spirit and her positive approach to life, with her passion being portraits and people. She relies on God's guidance and the inspiration from her love for Him as she continues to study and develop her talent in painting.
