Artist: T. Lilly
Size: 24″ High x 20″ Wide Canvas
T. Lilly combines the vitality of Folk Art with a fresh, confident grasp of natural subjects. Her complex colors, sharp outlines, and insistent shapes are as bold as Van Gogh’s.
Born in Portland, Oregon in 1957, Lilly is the middle of three sisters, all artists. She has always had two loves- nature and art -and originally enrolled at Reed College to study biology. Before she graduated from Reed, Lilly was exhibiting at galleries and at the encouragement of her teachers, focused on a painting career.
Although she has an extensive grounding in art history and photography, plus collaborations on film and multimedia work, Lilly’s painting is largely self-taught. Her exuberant brushstrokes and colors both intuitive and graceful, radiate confidence. Today she lives on 20 wild acres where she continues to enjoy and be inspired by the natural world. Lilly’s pieces, exhibited on both coasts, show a multitude of fresh perspectives in a joyous celebration of paint.
