Anne Worsham Richardson's love of birds inspired her to a career in art that has brought international recognition. Her paintings have hung in the offices of Presidents Ford, Carter and Reagan, and in homes and galleries across the United Sates and Europe. Her painting featuring the state bird and state flower, "Carolina Wren and Yellow Jassamine", hangs in the South Carolina State House in Columbia. Born near the Clarendon County town of Turbeville, she is the first woman bird painter to be selected to receive the "Art Print of the Year Award."
