Official portrait of Gov. Nikki Haley unveiled
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Gov. Nikki Haley's official portrait was unveiled Monday at the Governor's Mansion.
An oil-on-linen portrait by John Seibels Walker, the portrait depicts Gov. Haley in the Small Drawing Room on the first floor of the executive residence. In the painting, Gov. Haley is wearing the suit she wore during an address to the 2012 Republican National Convention.
The painting will be displayed – along with portraits of former governors including Gov. James B. Edwards, Gov. Richard W. Riley, Gov. Carroll Campbell and Gov. Mark Sanford – on the first floor of the residence beginning this week, as the governor is sworn in for a second term.
Artist John Seibels Walker was born in South Carolina. His body of work includes portraits of Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell, Chief Justice of South Carolina's Supreme Court Jean H. Toal, Medical University of South Carolina Executive Director W. Stuart Smith and North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue.
