Betty Ann Medeiros- artist from Danbury CT.
Over my career I have worked as a successful freelance illustrator, and fine artist. For several years I ran my own art studio where I taught
watercolor, oil and acrylic painting classes. I also taught lessons at Western Connecticut State University, and Escape to the Arts in Danbury CT. My
illustrations have been published in several magazines, books, and even on puzzles and my work has been exhibited in local art shows and
galleries, where I've sold to private and institutional collectors.
My creative style has been one of a realistic, colorful blend reminiscent of the traditional art of the “Golden age of Illustration”. My subject matter
usually includes figures animals, flowers and landscapes. I paint with bright colors while demonstrating my technical skill and ability to create exciting
compositions. I enjoy watercolor, figure drawing with charcoal, pastel, and oil painting in an impressionistic style. I also love to go painting "en plein
air" all around New England and painting large murals. My work can be viewed at www.medeirosstudios.com
