Cowork Waldo Enjoys Beautiful New Artwork

Beautiful Artwork by Artist Winnie DavisIMG_3687useIMG_3699 use

Marked with vibrant colors, florals, and geometric shapes, to say the new artwork on display at Cowork Waldo by local artist Winnie Davis is eye-popping, would be an understatement.

Thinking back for Winnie, she acknowledges that age ten might be early to start a love affair but that’s exactly when her love for art began. Her Grandma Jo gave her a gift of art lessons, and that very first date with art led to a life-long love with all kinds of artistic expression.

Winnie has been fortunate to study under artists whose works are featured in collections and galleries around the world. Artists Douglass Freed and Paul Allen taught both technique and
appreciation in ways that have given foundation to her work. After receiving an AA degree in Art from State Fair Community College, she pursued a degree in Environmental Design from the University of Missouri. Much more than just design, her instructors and professors taught her to see the art in every aspect of the environment.

While she may not have been painting throughout this entire time, she spent much time studying great works of art of both local and international artists and visiting galleries from San Francisco to London and New York to Santa Fe. This time and study have added to her understanding of art and helped form her particular style of painting.

Fortunately for us all, Winnie has been inspired to create paintings again. Having found ARTichokes Gallery in 2008, she started attending classes taught by Becky Pashia, Ada Koch, Kristin Goering and Samantha Buller. These teaching artists helped Winnie distill a lifetime of impressions into paintings – into her form of expression.

Her works hang in private collections from Kansas City to Hilton Head, South Carolina and it gives her great pleasure knowing that they touched someone in a gentle, yet powerful way.

We are proud to showcase some of Winnie’s work in our space at Cowork Waldo now through the end of January.
