Gene Berryhill

G. Gene Berryhill, Ph.D. worked as a professor of art and art history at universities in numerous parts of the world for over thirty years, her most recent positions being at the Belmont University campus in Nashville, TN and theUniversity of Maryland-UMGC online. A published non-fiction author, a Fulbright scholar and a National Endowment forthe Humanities co-recipient briefly sums up her career in academia.

As a professional artist in mixed media and documental photography with a stint in fresco painting, five years ago she picked up sketching and painting again, which sparked, lit the kindling, and started the fire to write her first work of fiction, Ripples From the Holler. It was a leap of faith from city life and extensive travel to focus on her love for American history, Tennessee, country living and her kin—past and present.

Today Berryhill lives in Gallatin and Monroe TN with her husband Bob. They have two sons, Deven and Joel, daughters-in-law, Wendy and Melody and granddaughters Jane, Grace, Faith and Selah.
