Paintings by Phillis Vandehaar
Art has always been an integral part of Phyllis. She has a BA in Fine Arts and an MFA from the University of Colorado in Fine Arts. Her career was one of a high school art instructor, the bulk of the years at Arapahoe High School in Littleton. Her mantra was always "if art isn't challenging, enlightening, enjoyable, requiring the thinking process, there is something wrong!"
In retirement she still teaches a few private lessons as well as classes and workshops. Phyllis is, also, a working artist in watercolor, mixed media, pastels, charcoal, and collage. While capable of realistic imagery, she prefers to abstract out subject matter through loosely applied color and brush work. Her greatest sense of achievement is inventing subject matter, using vibrant color, creating unusual relationships, and simply making up things as she produces her art. She often produces her art into what are sometimes impossible situations as well as introducing subtle tongue-in-cheek humor. She says, "I don't know what I would have done with my life had I not been an artist!"
Enjoy the Phyllis Vandehaar exhibit throughout the month of May.
