September: Phyllis Meyer

Phyllis Meyer is an award winning, full time artist known for her singular and personal style. She is a shape painter and enjoys exploring new techniques, media and subjects. Working in acrylic, watercolor and mixed aqueous media she paints abstractions often which include birds. Design and vibrant colors are primary in her work which exhibits her spontaneity and joy in applying paint to paper. You will find that sometimes her intuitive approach includes humor. Her designs are often created by using a grid structure underneath. The collage papers she uses are hand painted and decorated. Calligraphic line work is frequently used to move the viewer’s eye around the painting.
Paintings by Phyllis are included in corporate collections (Don Morrisette Headquarters, Daniel Smith’s collection, Pacific University, City of Beaverton) as well as numerous personal collections.
Phyllis is a member of many art groups – critiques and organizations (Watercolor Society of Oregon, National Watercolor Society, North West Watercolor Society.) She has earned signature status in the latter two societies. She is represented at Currents Gallery in McMinnville and the Village Gallery in Portland. Phyllis has exhibited in numerous juried, solo and group shows locally, regionally and nationally and has won many awards.
