Clarkesville's John Kollock tells stories with his creativity
Artist uses his skills to help craft travel guide, themed-look for city of Helen
Watercolor artist John Kollock lives with his wife Nancy of 53 years in a unique homestead in Clarkesville.
Once upon a time, the English village at the end of the gravel driveway in Clarkesville was just a simple sharecropper’s home and the neighboring city of Alpine Helen was just another rural mountain town. That was before John Kollock worked his magic as a storytelling artist. The 85-year-old has written and illustrated a number of books detailing North Georgia’s history.
