Beginner and Intermediate Oil

Connie Winters

Perhaps best-known for her vibrant Impressionist-style paintings Connie Winters has a unique sensitivity to color. "I see so much color and I’m drawn to it," she explains, "I think I see more than most people; while some would look at a road and see gray asphalt I will see shades of lavender, blue and even red. It’s just the way it appears to me."

Connie has studied with notable artists Phillip Moose-Pulitzer Prize for art, the late Shirley Markham, Alice Steadman, Constantine Chatov, Mark Chatov, Alice Williams, the late Henry Barnes, and Quang Ho. More recently she has studied with Kevin McPherson and C.W. Mundy.

Her paintings are found in many notable private and corporate collections, which include, John Randolph Hearst Jr., the Coca-Cola collection, the Duke Mansion in Charlotte and the permanent collections of Erskine College, Presbyterian College and Wingate College.
