Eve Werner is an award-winning multi-media painter whose work explores natural subjects. She is known for her vivid use of color and values in expressively painted figurative work. Her current foci are two ongoing series exploring native California trees and horses. Werner says:
“My work involves the interplay of opposites – conscious/subconscious, planned/spontaneous, physical/emotional, beauty/beast, fear/courage, and real/abstract – that shape me as a person and an artist.”
Werner is inspired by a variety of modernist and expressive artists, including the Bay Area Society of Six, Tracy Taylor Grubbs, and Richard Diebenkorn. She has studied painting in California since 1995, favoring subjects with underlying personal symbolism. When not painting, Werner relishes life in northern California with her family and practices landscape architecture. Her art is found in private collections throughout the United States.
