Jimmie Lee Sudduth

Jimmie Lee Sudduth (alternate spelling Jimmy by many), one of America’s most famous outsider artists, was born on March 10, 1910 in Caines Ridge, Alabama. He grew up in the pre-60’s South and as many blacks in those times had little formal education. A self-taught folk artist, at eight years old Jimmy Lee Sudduth was covering almost anything that didn’t move with his own “sweet mud” concoction of mud, berries, sugar, coffee grounds and plants. Indians, animals, his dog Toto, mansions and other fanciful imaginative works rendered in his signature medium on plywood have remained among his favorite subjects with the recent addition of house paint to add color to his works. A musician and wonderful storyteller as well as consummate contemporary folk artist, Jimmie Lee Sudduth continues to be widely collected and exhibited.

Jimmie (also spelled Jimmy by many) Lee Sudduth, renowned, self-taught folk artist, passed away on Sunday, September 2, 2007 at the age of 97.
