Combining her love of outdoor plein air painting with the challenge of abstracting the landscape, Trish provides a contemporary rendering of a realistic environment. Her landscape work pushes reality by the use of bold, vibrant color and imaginative design.
Painting with watercolor/oils/acrylics, Trish received progressive degrees in art/education from Grinnell College Iowa, The University of Iowa, and
The University of Illinois. She has taught at the high school, community college,
art groups, and private levels.
