Tilley - Landscape Painter:
Visit my secluded woodland studio and garden and you will see small
watercolors, plein air pastels and large pastel paintings. These
paintings may be part of several different and on-going series:
The Tangled Garden Series has been vining its way around my studio
for more than three decades. Some paintings are large. Some are
tiny. Some are started and completed in the studio. Others are
plein air works (completely painted on location in the garden).
My love for all things horticultural is celebrated in these colorful
series I have "in the works" are:
Agricultural Architecture: Our Disappearing Barns
Backyards: Gardens & Wash Lines
newest series is The Fifty State Plein Air Painting Project. I
have painted a plein air pastel on location in 19 states so far.
can watch my progress on the blog.
I have been a professional artist for over 40 years since leaving
Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. My work has been seen in
eleven one-woman gallery shows and numerous group and museum exhibits.
It is held widely in corporate and private collections. Two of
my large pastel paintings received First Place Painting Prizes
in the regional juried Images of Susquehanna County Exhibit in
'04 & '06. I was invited for three years to participate in
the NYC Central Park Paint Out as an invited signature member
of the National Academy of Professional Plein Air Painters. In
2004 I was the first Artist in Residence at Salt Springs State
Park. My pastel plein air paintings have been chosen twice by
the Pennsylvania Environmental Council to be presented as awards
for lifetime achievement. I achieved signature status in Pennsylvania
En Plein Air Society as well as International Plein Air Painters
and Landscape Artists International. I am a member of Pastel Society
of America. I occasionally am invited or juried in to national
plein air events around the country. My full color magazine illustrations
appeared in magazines including Woman's Day and Horticulture.
Monday, I will be painting a watercolor bouquet at 11am and a
pastel painting at 2pm
hopefully out in the garden, weather
