Phyletus Wright was born in the mountains of Hendersonville, North Carolina where she
began her love of painting at the age of 8 years old. Her talent was perfected at Florida
State University but quickly returned to her home in the mountains. She has always stayed
true to her subject matter, the people and places of Western North Carolina. Phyletus
Wright has been flattered with many awards that include "Hendersonville Art League's
"Artist of the Year", several 1st place Art League finishes and "Best in Show" in the
Bradenton, Fl. Art Festival. Countless originals have been shown from Orlando to
England, including original contracted paintings for restaurants, churches and individuals.
She continues to find the character, nuances, and basic, old world values that are deeply
embedded in the fabric of the Blue Ridge Mountains and its people. Scenes depicted in
her work are the "Mountain Songs" that keep millions of vacationers returning to downtown
Hendersonville each year.
