A nationally recognized master watercolorist with numerous signature memberships, Anderson also paints in acrylic and creates pet portraits in watercolor. "I paint to convey the peace and wonder I feel when I put brush to paper. During those hours, I return to the awe and awareness of nature I knew as a child. When those who observe my work enter into that magical place with me, that is when I feel my purpose is accomplished, and I am twice blessed."

My inspiration for painting on silk is influenced by my experiences while growing up in Hawaii with its Asian and Hawaiian culture, an artistic family, and my observation of nature while hiking throughout Oregon. I've always been fascinated with nature and it's wonders, from the tiniest insects and wild birds to the night sky. The natural world influences my art directly and pleases my soul.

  • 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."
I primarily work with acrylics in landscape and nature themes.  The beauty of Southern Oregon inspires my work, though I use abstraction and bright colors to convey emotion.   I am an award-winning artist with art in private collections nationwide.  I offer my work either in original form or as fine giclee prints.  I also teach painting and mixed media classes.

"Native Zoie" watercolor by Kirsten Meriwether.

Kirsten Meriwether

  • Watercolors
  • Medford
I started painting ten years ago, taking classes from other artists and attending life drawing studios. My main medium is watercolor, but I also use oil, acrylic and ink. Recently my work has been evolving into a more abstract representation of subject matter, with an emphasis on design. Living here in Southern Oregon, I am especially interested in my surroundings and all the visual variety there is for an artist here. I welcome commissions.

  • 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.

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.
