Tucked away in a little corner of paradise behind The Villages of South Walton shopping and dining complex is an unexpected visual delight.

A.Wickey Studio Gallery is the artistic home of Walton County 's 2011 Artist of the Year Allison Wickey.

Inside, art lovers will find not only Wickey's dramatically beautiful pieces of artwork, but also the work of five other artists.

Wickey paints with venetian plaster and acrylic on wood, in much the same technique she learned when she painted faux finishes and murals in homes and businesses in Illinois .

"All the techniques I used there in my faux-finish business, I brought with me," she said.

Wickey said it was a process going from doing murals and faux finishes to where she is today of creating singular pieces of art, but the process has been helped by living in an inspiring environment.

"After moving here, I started painting the local dunes and landscapes as they are in my imagination, like they probably were before development took over. The culmination of that process is usually an abstract landscape," she said. "I like to do abstract landscapes."
