I have a passionate and spiritual reaction to nature. And I paint my subjects in an attempt to recreate that emotional truth and excitement. I paint primarily with water media because I love its transparent quality, vibrant colors and unpredictability. Spirited interpretations of my subjects are somewhat realistic yet ethereal. Celebration happens for me when I successfully express what I attempt to paint…and to share…a soul connection.

  • Animal Artist, Fine Art Oil Painter
Lori Garfield's DNA determined that she should be an artist. She sees and feels the world around her more acutely than many, bringing an awareness of the oneness of the heartbeats on our planet. "I limit my focus to North American animals and plants. Perhaps when I create a familiar critter you'll be reminded of actions that may impact them. I hope my classical atelier training is enough to bring a smile, pause at Nature's splendor and reflect on our connected lives."

  • Talent, Oregon
I begin my watercolor paintings with an idea and a drawing. I build the painting layer by layer, drawing lines and shapes, looking for rhythm and feeling. My color sense is a reflection of my childhood in New Mexico fused with colors from my home in the Northwest. My goal is to go beyond the surface to find joy, wonder and a bit of mystery.
Artist Eva Thiemann of Jacksonville (the Applegate Valley), Oregon paints grizzlies and Alaskan brown bears against abstract Alaskan landscapes, as in this original oil painting, 'Alaska Bear River.'

I have a degree from the Academie of Art and a Biology degree from the University of Riga, Latvia. My sculptures in bronze are in private collections in Latvia, Germany and England. When I came to Alaska from Latvia in 1997 I was overwhelmed by its beauty; I was able to observe Alaska's magnificent brown bears and painting them with Alaska scenery became my passion. In 2003 I came to Applegate, Oregon. My paintings are exhibited in Ashland, Medford and Jacksonville galleries.
