Juror: Gretchen Kelly
Gretchen states, “I work in a variety of mediums and styles. Primarily, I do figurative works and landscapes. My fashion and home decor background influence my work at times. I am inspired by the beauty of what is natural in my world and embellish it with my own personal touches of color, pattern and ornament. My work has a whimsical nature to it which comes from my spontaneous marks as I paint. I work quickly and try to capture gestures and nuances of fleeting moments which are the details that bring to each painting, the beauty that I see and record. Simplicity is the mark that I strive for.”
