Raised in the Allegheny Mountains of Western Pennsylvania, Lois Tryon began drawing and studying art at an
early age, but put it aside to pursue a career in nursing, eventually specializing in orthopedic surgery.  As the wife
of a career Army officer, she traveled throughout the world and now resides in Columbus, GA.  As she likes to say,
she has photographed her way through thousands and thousands of miles.  

Working in both oils and photographic art, and sometimes combining the two, Lois presents her unique view of the
world, many times in small fragments that often go unnoticed.  In fact, the title of her first one man show was
Fragments, at what is now the Sibley Center at Callaway Gardens.  She has never called herself a "photographer",
and calls her product "photographic art".  There are no studio sets, no back-drops, no creative computer
programs.  It is the camera, the light and the subject, occasionally hand tinted with paints of various kinds.  Her
interest in the environment and in historic preservation has influenced her work, and she is a member of many arts
organizations, and has a special interest in the Chattahoochee River.

As the director of Arts on the River,  Lois  meets many other artists and works very hard to advance the arts, with
special attention to those just beginning or who may be a little timid about showing their work.

Lois' work is on display at the Gallery on 10th  in Columbus, GA, and in numerous private collections.  She is also
credited with designing the 35th Infantry Regiment Memorial on the Walk of Honor at the National Infantry Museum
at Fort Benning, Georgia.

All photographs are limited editions, and only one print of a size is available for sale.  All photos are matted, with the
mat complimenting the photo. Many times hand-tinting is added for emphasis or to improve contrast.  Photos are
mostly from 35 mm slides, though there are recent ventures with digital cameras due to the difficulty of getting
quality prints from traditional methods.   Oil paintings are  on canvas, or canvas panel, and are often inspired by
her many photographs.   They are impressionistic in nature, and on occasion mixed media are used.  As in the
photographs, color is a primary influencing factor in the choice and presentation of subject.
