Tupper Malone has been practicing art for over thirty years; acquiring a Fine Arts degree was a mid-life accomplishment. Initially working as a sculptor, Tupper is now involved with watercolor and collage as the main media of expression. The artist employed subdued colors in exploring landscapes and animal forms and moved to work that includes the use gouache and watercolor crayon, creating both pastel-colored pieces reminiscent of an impressionistic painting; and bright, intense landscapes, still-lifes, figures and abstracts. Another technique, air brush, has allowed further development in her work creating depth through layering as seen in the Sacred Words Imperfect series. The freedom of watercolor permits spontaneity and immediate reaction to the paint that allows the experimentation vital to artistic growth.
