Connie is a native of Missouri and now spends summers in Estes Park, Colorado. After a career in finance, she returned to her love of art by attending several watercolor workshops in Colorado. The beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park became her inspiration. “My paintings are an expression of my love of color and natural beauty. I have found the landscapes of Colorado to be inspirational and try to convey this to the viewer through my studio and plein air work. “Working en plein air with watercolors is challenging and joyous, whether painting solo or with like-minded artists. The changing light, vagaries of weather, and interruptions by curious onlookers contribute to the development of the finished piece. It is my hope that my representation of time and place engages the emotions of the viewer.” Member of the Saint Louis Watercolor Society and Plein Air Artists of Colorado.
