Artist drawn to historical buildings

Tuesday, February 21, 2012


NEW MADRID - Jeanie Eddleman looks at faded pictures from the past and sees artwork for the future.

Eddleman's graphite-rendered pencil drawings of many of southeast Missouri's historic buildings can be found in art collections in 30 states and 13 foreign countries. Currently many of the works, including drawings of the Higgerson School, the New Madrid Historical Museum and the New Madrid County Courthouse, are on display at the Hart-Stepp Art Gallery in New Madrid.

"I have always drawn," said Eddleman. "My first drawing was when I was 3 years old and I still have that drawing."
