Shirley Blake


Artist's Statement:

My work represents 30 plus years of studying with local and national artists as well as personal artistic growth.

Using different media in both realistic and abstract paintings has contributed to my style.

I have a B.A. from the University of Iowa with graduate work in Art and Adult Education.

Both private tutoring and group teaching in water color, acrylic, mixed media and collage have added to my painting concepts via selective use of design elements, color and composition.
