Wanda Nevel at Bakery Nouveau
November 8 WSAW, 2012
After receiving her degree from Western Illinois University, Wanda taught art to students of all ages for nearly 30 years. As an award-winning artist, Wanda has worked in watercolor, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, inks, oils, glass etching, beading, and stained glass.
A gypsy at heart, Wanda traveled throughout the United States after retirement, pushing herself to expand her subjects to include ocean life and portraits. Although landlocked in northern Idaho, her love of the ocean inspired her to visit and reproduce coastal landscapes from Seattle to San Diego and Arcadia National Park to the Florida Keys. Her classic works portray still lifes; domestic animals; and the wildlife and scenery found throughout the western United States, especially deer, elk, barns, and lighthouses.
Wanda has participated and sold her artwork in several art shows, including “Art in the Park” in Leavenworth, Washington; the Spring and Fall Art Shows in Riggins, Idaho; and the Idaho County Fair in Cottonwood, Idaho. She has family in Seattle and visits often.
