February Artist of the Month

woolum

Mr. Everett Woolum is a local artist, custom woodworker and antique furniture repairman. He is the founder and owner of Woolum’s Originals. Mr. Woolum says of himself,
“I have lived in Seabrook for forty years or more. My vocation was not art or woodworking, but I have been doing art all my life. My dad was a high school teacher.  We had a shop in the school which I used for woodworking. I taught Industrial and Commercial Electricity at junior college for seventeen years.
I like to do my own mounting and framing for my pictures. I like working in oil, watercolor & acrylic. I paint whatever I find interesting.”
