I am a painter, originally from Miami, Florida, where I developed a fascination with recreating the colors and vibrancy of the tropics. My fascination with different cultures has led me to working on a series of women in costume. I try to capture the essence of what I see and feel before me. Sometimes, this means just getting basic abstract shapes; other times, it involves more detail. Whether I palint flowers, plein air, or the figure...anything I see before me becomes a challenge to be treated in a new way.
Thank ya very much! I have not submitted anything in a lil while so I'm not exhibiting anywhere at the moment. I'm currently working on finishing a few new things and am kinda holding off so I can be sure to include them.
I have a cpl of newer paintings that are an improvement over my first 8 I think. I'm still looking for my style as I'm new to painting. I have seen your work before and am really inspired by your AWESOME colour usage and composition. lol.
Also finishing a new sculpture using more "traditional" materials. I love your color usage in your paintings.
I'm new to showing my work and haven't had any serious local shows of any kind, but I'm excited to get the ball rolling. I had an offer from a really cool gallery in Ohio for a show~~but just wasn't possible to get there at the moment. Bummer. Sooo I decided I'd try to hit up some local galleries and see if I've got what it takes. I'm Gonna try for Art Saint Louis first I think.
My name is Nora Doyle, the Physical Education Coordinator at America SCORES St. Louis.
