DEBORAH HAGGMAN
My paintings lean to realistic and detail oriented and I have made peace with the fact I love painting with a small brush. I am drawn to Northwest landscapes of trees, beaches and rocks.
CHRISTINE ALFERY
I paint abstract subject matter. It changes from my own unique, imaginative marvels to motley complex wonderings. I cherish these complex wonderings. They keep things in motion, perpetual motion. Common unimaginative statements do not.
MERRILEE SETT
I paint for the love and absorbing challenge of it all. Being caught up in the relationship between myself, subject and process is pleasing in itself, but when an onlooker's caught up, that's truly gratifying.
CAROL LOSINSKI NAYLOR
I specialize in the intriguing technique of watercolor batik. I love the magic that happens with the color and wax and the challenge of working with transparent papers.
LYNDA RAVEN BRAKE
The process of doing art is my life. I'm always amazed as warn & cool, light & dark values, and complimentary colors come to life on paper. This is true for any medium, but I love watercolors.
SANDY HAIGHT
The inner landscape of flowers & botanicals have inspired me to explore watercolor in a way that finds abstract beauty in the very real patterns of light and shadow. I’m a signature member of NWWS.

Watercolor captures texture and light in a unique way. It allows me to explore the wildness and beauty of the natural world using light, color, texture, shape and form-line.
MOLLY LEMASTER
Much of my work is inspired by nature and by the travels my husband and I have experienced. I like color. I like Detail. I teach classes and the occasional workshop.

LISA HILL
Much of the natural world is fragile; thriving only a short time The ever-present challenge, to grasp the form, color and value range of those living delicacies with paint and brush, is exciting to me.
ELISE MEREDITH BEATTIE
Fearless paintings and inspirational techniques are the hallmarks of my art. I create work designed to uplift the spirit. Mine is not the work of controversy, but work inspired by the world’s serenity and beauty.
DON DEVINE
"If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
Edward Hopper
SHERRI BAILS
With each painting I have simple goals - I want to make sure the structure has strong design, I challenge myself to try something new, and I tell a story about the origin of the piece.
BETH BETKER
On location and in the studio, even the thinnest paint is part of a sculptural adventure. I'm fascinated with human habitat and industry, that delicious meeting of accident and intention.
SHIRLEY MERCER
Why do I paint? I can't stop. I love it--reflecting my thoughts and feelings in paint and mastering the techniques that are specific to watercolor. Enjoy!

Watercolor's transparency of application and color clarity have always drawn me to play in this medium. I typically paint outdoor subjects including birds and other animals, trees, stone formations and scenes from various travels.
DONNA CAULTON
My work is a reflection of plant and animal life cycles in my environment. In the high mountains of northern New Mexico, where I live, that means birds, sky and other mountain magic.
