Dee Tivenan

I started to paint at 59. In my work as a psychotherapist I focus on feelings and paint from an emotional perspective. Brushwork and color are increasingly important tools for me to convey emotions.

I am drawn to nature and there's usually a landscape reference in my paintings. Play and spontaneity are significant elements in my work.

I build the structure of my paintings with multiple layers, sometimes combining different mediums. Examples are watercolors and pastels or oils and acrylics.
