I have know Pauline Conn for several years now and have appreciated her art for every one of those years. She has written a bio for me to spotlight on this blog and I do so with enthusiasm.
To quote Pauline:
“I’ve always been an artist. I started as a child with oil paints and clay. I've studied art in Minneapolis, Fort Worth, Corvallis Oregon and Taos NM. I've lived all over the country and am now a full-time RVer.
In Taos I studied plein air oil painting for several years with artist Barbara Bartels. We met weekly for 5 years, painting outside in the summer and doing studio work in the winter.
I also completed around 1000 hours of art study at the University of New Mexico, Taos, in Portraiture, 2 Dimensional Design and Life Drawing. I exhibited in various locations, including the famous Fall Arts Festival in Taos.
I'd always loved watercolor and had studied it in Texas, where I lived before I moved to Taos. When I moved to Oregon I found an artist who taught pen and ink contour drawing, watercolor and colored pencil and studied with her for about 4 years.
I currently winter in Arizona and summer in the Pacific Northwest. In Arizona I am juried in to the Artists of the Superstitions art association. We do 5 shows a year. plus I do other shows throughout the year. I now concentrate on pen and ink contour drawing, watercolor and colored pencil.
I love this work and love teaching it. I feel that I can teach anyone how to draw. I currently teach at the RV park where we spend the winter, and also teach Artistic Travel Journaling at Central Arizona College. I sell at the shows, plus off my facebook page (Pauline Conn Art) and Etsy.”
