Mary Whyte is an artist, teacher and author whose figurative watercolor paintings
have earned international recognition. A resident of Johns Island, South Carolina, Whyte garners much of her inspiration from the Gullah descendants of coastal Carolina slaves who number among her most prominent subjects. Her portraits are included in numerous corporate, private, and university collections, as well as in the permanent collections of South Carolina’s Greenville County Museum of Art and the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston. In 2003, Whyte’s paintings of her Gullah friends culminated in a museum exhibition and book called Alfreda’s World.
