Featured Artist: Shirley Curtis

 

Visit our tasting room to view work by our latest featured artist, Shirley Curtis.

As a teen, Shirley was inspired by the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh.  As a student in college, she studied Biological Illustration and studio painting. But it wasn’t until later when her passion became plein air painting where she’s able to intuit from nature the impressionistic effects of color and light to achieve a brightness and emotional response to the subject matter she hopes to convey to the viewer.

Shirley’s art will be featured at Miraflores until the end of February.
