Patty Dwyer - Plein air, Oil Painting, and Pastels

Joy, exuberance, texture, vibrant colors and the interplay of light, shadow and passion are what I hope to capture in my work – whether en plein air or in my studio. I am a fortunate artist, who lives and works in Colorado. The mountains and all of outdoors, varied seasons, water and intriguing skies are key elements in most of my work. My style is both impressionistic and expressionistic with the use of color, light, brushwork and emotion in my oil paintings and soft pastels.

My work has been shown in Aspen, Breckenridge, Frisco, Estes Park and Grand Lake, as well as The Depot Gallery, Main Street Fine Art Gallery, Mary Williams Fine Art, Space Gallery, Cherokee Castle, and Outnumbered Gallery in Littleton.  I have participated in numerous Plein Air events throughout Colorado and Minnesota. I am a member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado, Colorado Pastel Society, The Littleton Fine Arts Guild and Roxborough Arts.

My studio is located at artSPARK Creative Studios, 5650 S. Curtice St., Littleton - where I teach a variety of classes – in the studio and plein air.

Look for my schedule of classes in Oils and Plein Air, Teen Drawing Skills, and Dabble, an exploration of a variety of media.



Heleen Koekemoer- Oil and Acrylic Painting

South African native Heleen Koekemoer studied fashion design and worked as a designer in London, England. After becoming a mother she returned to her original passion for creating art. A self-taught Artist with a love for art/music and storytelling, Heleen found a safe environment in which she could release hidden emotions and discover hidden beauty. She now helps children meet their true potential by combining her "Life Coaching for Kids Certification" skills with art and storytelling. Through art, Heleen teaches children that creating opens the heart and the mind to life's possibilities, while fueling their imaginations to help them connect with their true self, their dreams, and passions.

While Heleen's favorite medium is oil on canvas, she loves to experiment with any medium she can get her hands on. Vibrant colors bring both canvas and Artist to life. The sources of Heleen's inspiration include beauty, symbols, spirituality, and storytelling.
