Lorie Merfeld-Batson - Artist
Award-winning plein air painter Lorie Merfeld-Batson apprenticed with nationally known artist Gerald Merfeld and then studied in Chicago at the American Academy of Art and the Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Arts. She now lives in southern Colorado with her family, regularly painting plein air and traveling by horseback into the mountains to gather material.
She paints in oils and pastels and occasionally watercolors and finds that switching mediums keeps a freshness in her approach.
Next month she will be participating in the Nomadas Del Arte in Dallas and the Governer's Invitational Art Show in Loveland, Colorado.
