Jane RockholdOil, Watercolor
I paint in oil and watercolor to capture the beauty in nature, usually in flowers or in the human figure. Although realistic, my paintings express a great interest in color and abstract design and through my editing what is seen in nature, an original somewhat impressionistic painting is created. After receiving a BA degree in fine arts and art education at Mary Washington College and studying an additional two years at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, I taught art four years in the New Jersey public schools. My husband and I have lived in Florida many years and in Port Orange twenty years. I have won many awards given by local art organizations and I am a signature member of the Florida Watercolor Society.
