(1910-2007), AL

Jimmie Lee Sudduth started making art using mud and other natural pigments when he was a child; he claimed to know of at least 30 shades of clay around his homeground. He discovered early on that by adding a sugar-based substance to the mud such as molasses or Coca-Cola, that the mud would stay fixed to the surface it was applied to. By the mid-1990s, because of advancing age, Sudduth started using more acrylic paints in his work. He passed away September 2, 2007.
