Oil, Pastel, Watercolor, Glass Art
I am mostly a self-taught artist, but I have taken various workshops with Sheila Reiman, Julie Oriet, Mary Ann Cherry, Carol Guzman, Richard McDaniel and Richard McKinley. I, also, was a student of Greg Wilhelmi, Jeanie Southworth and Tim Shinabarger.
I have won several awards and monies over the years, most recently a Merit Award and prizes in the 2008 Nationally Juried "Pastel Extravaganza" Show in Loveland, Colorado and have artworks in homes all over the United States and Canada.
I have donated artworks to several fundraisers and charities including painting both a Small Horse and Small Big Horn Sheep statues for the Restoration Project of the downtown Billings Historic Montana Ave.; also, a small grizzly bear statue for a fundraiser in Cody, Wyoming.
I am a member of the Carbon County Arts Guild, Cody Country Art League, Pastel Society of the Northern Rockies and Billings Art Association - of which I was Fine Art Assistant for several years and am at present one of the artists finding locations and organizing Paint Outs during the summer months.
My art can be seen at the Carbon County Arts Guild in Red Lodge, MT - Cody Country Art League in Cody, WY and in Billings, MT at the Sandstone Gallery - Picture Perfect or The Frame Hut and Gallery. You may also visit my website at www.louisepayovich.com.
