After a long career as a courtroom artist, Ms. Woosley has turned her talents in the direction of the fine arts, fulfilling a lifelong ambition of being a full-time fine art painter. "I've made a commitment to paint those things I find meaningful and to share my vision of both tangible and spiritual themes. I love painting animals, the western landscape...and western people in general." Brigitte is alarmed at the rapid rate at which the landscape is being altered by development and is wanting "to capture as much of the landscape as remains undeveloped." After many years in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area Brigitte returned to the Texas Hill country where she continues to sketch the occasional trial and focus on fine art painting. She has been invited to participate in a number of prestigious Western art venues across Texas and beyond.
