Jo Beth Gilliam a Texas native has painted over 40 years finding her creative voice in watercolor. Her first watercolor class in the ’80’s began an exciting journey drawing her attention away from the oil medium. Workshops from watercolor instructors, Frank Webb and Christopher Schink, were instrumental for her loose and colorful style. Jo Beth took basic instructions and critiques with enthusiasm and painted almost non stop. The mile high paintings….some good some not…. were the spring board for a teaching invitation. Since the first colorful brush load of color on white paper, she has introduced the watercolor excitement to many eager students.
Jo Beth has been an instructor/juror sharing her knowledge of the spontaneous medium of watercolor. Her paintings have appeared in magazines, Artistic Touch, Splash and brochures. On-line, Painting from Photographs instructions can be purchased at www.wetcanvas.com Most of her studio time is spent preparing for the next workshop or gallery call.
