My name is Chastity Sayer Smith, I am a newly married mother of two. I became a resident artist at River Oaks in the summer of 2020. I have always had a strong passion for art but did not begin painting professionally until 2019. Most of my pieces are textured paintings usually inspired by Louisiana nature and wildlife, but I do dabble in a little of everything. I also love creating commission pieces for others to remember special moments or people in their lives. I regularly teach art classes at local boutiques as well as private art lessons in my studio, I love sharing my passion for art with others. I hope to inspire others to use art as a way to express themselves and show who they truly are.
