Painting from her studio in the hip neighborhood of Germantown in Nashville, Tennessee, Swarthout explores her work by removing judgment from the creative process and embracing the fluid nature of reacting to paint in natural ways inside and outside of the studio.
“Art is a conscious way of life”, Swarthout insists. “I choose to live my life thoughtfully and artfully.”

GREGG IRBY GALLERY
Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta is the contemporary fine art destination for discovering up & coming, regionally, and nationally acclaimed painters. Located on Atlanta’s Westside, Gregg Irby Gallery is not your typical art gallery. With 30 artists represented, more than 300 paintings and works on paper are hanging in the airy 3,400 square foot space with industrial high ceilings, vintage French lights and doors, and epoxy floors. Our team welcomes visitors as guests, rather than clients, encouraging them to casually explore at their own pace. The gallery’s passion and motivation is to launch truly talented and hardworking artists and to present established artists as they should be experienced.
In the 20 years of curating the works of artists, Gregg Irby Gallery has proven to be the source for discovering paintings and works on paper that will resonate for years to come.
