A student of art since childhood, my love for nature and art come together in the medium of watercolor. I am fortunate to have studied under artists Lavonne Tarbox Crone and Judy Morris, who have inspired and nurtured me, but I recognize that my abilities are gifts of the Creator, whose beautiful masterpieces could never be rivaled. I have been a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon since 2004.

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."

The subject matter that I am interested in is representational. I strive to be thorough and accurate and yet catch what is fleeting and lively. The work I'm most proud of shows life as I see it: fatally flawed, but amazingly beautiful.

  • Phone: 541.301.7560
Painting is my way of expressing an emotion or moment in time to share with others. I paint a variety of subjects in many mediums and find in each a joyful challenge; I'm currently experimenting with abstract expressionism. I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, in numerous galleries throughout Southern Oregon, and at the Saatchi Gallery in London. My father was an artist and my great, great grandfather was George Inness, an artist of the Hudson River School.

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.

My work is mainly landscapes, seascapes & nature images taken in S. Oregon and along the Oregon Coast, joined by travel, architectural, floral and abstract photos. During 30+ years as a cardio-thoracic Surgical Physician Asst. I've helped patients and family through some of the most stressful days of their lives. This makes creating images with a sense of beauty and peace which can relieve the stresses of life one of my greatest joys.
