Eugenia M. Horstman
I have been drawing all my life, but in my first formal art classes I studied oil painting with Herman Maril at the University of Maryland. After college, I worked in editing, graphic design, and layout and did not have time for painting. After I retired and moved to Arizona, I became interested in watercolors. I took classes with Roberta Rogers in Flagstaff, and I have taken workshops with many other fine
watercolor artists as well.
I especially love painting the dramatic landscapes of the Southwest, but I find appealing subject matter wherever I go ---from sweeping vistas to intimate details, animals, and occasional portraits. I like the medium of watercolor especially for its surprising and delightful "accidents"
that create pleasing effects I may not have thought of.
Besides being a juried member of Northern Arizona Watercolor Society, I belong to the Artists' Coalition of Flagstaff and Plateau Painters (in Flagstaff), whose members support and encourage each other.
