About The Artist
Scanlon explores the theme of intimacy in both still life and landscape painting. Her journey into the world of painting and drawing began 30 years ago in a little town outside of Aix-en-Provence. Studying art at L’Université Américain d’Aix-en-Provence, she learned to paint in the fields and country lanes of Le Tholonet. This quiet introduction into how to see and how to enter the world of representation and abstraction has informed her work ever since.
For the past several years, Scanlon has studied painting with several contemporary painters including Carol Lefkowitz, Kathleen Dunphy and Dean Fisher. The unruly elegance of nature is an ongoing source of inspiration for her paintings. Observation of the atmosphere surrounding objects is at the heart of her painting practice. Scanlon continues to explore the quiet intimacy of objects and the natural world in oil and watercolor.
