 I came across this article about Clementine Hunter in the New York Times Travel section. Clementine Hunter was an outsider artist who grew up on a slave plantation. In her lifetime, she painted over 10,000 pieces of artwork and painted on everything she could get her hands on, for example, discarded wood remnants. She lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Here is the link to the article.
