Vivian’s Bio: My studio is in Friendswood, Texas.  I teach classes in intermediate and advanced painting.  I have taught sculpture and ceramics including Raku firing.  “Painting on Silk” is another technique I demonstrate.  I have painted on location in the Houston Arboretum, the Mercer Arboretum, the Texas Hill Country, Colorado and Mexico.

My style emphasizes bold and transparent color.  With watercolor techniques I capture a variety of moods with light and shadow.  I experiment with photography, drawing, painting, lithography and sculpture. Themes that fascinate me are nature, the flight of birds, inner peace, and romance.  Other subjects of interest are architecture, dance, music and songs. The beauty of the human figure and flowers are subjects that I return to again and again.
