PAINTINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY PHYLLIS
I would just like to give someone a little joy and hopefully, a smile when they see my images. Photographer from age 5 or 6 with an abundance of 1st and 'Best of Shows' Awards, and some commercial work. Studied Art and Architecture at Stephen's College, Columbia, Mo. from 1951 to 1953. A degree in Teaching and in Desktop Publishing. Began painting in all media in 2001, with a variety of excellent teachers.
Phyllis has her own style of painting that seems to go from Realistic to Impressionistic. Keeps her Iowa husband of 60 years 'off balance' most of the time. Her paintings are bright and happy. Her favorite subjects are Animals, mostly wild and some domestic. Travel, Landscapes and Nautical often show up in her studio, as well. Her favorite media is acrylics. She is a master of color with a bit of wit thrown in.
She says, 'If God can use all that lovely color in nature, then so can I. But he is a better artist than I.
