Chris Beck
Wisconsin artist Chris Beck went from the fine art program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to a career as a graphic designer and then found her way back to painting.

Her bright, high-chroma watercolors have been featured in magazines like Watercolor Artist and The Artist’s Magazine and she has been the recipient of a number of awards from juried shows and exhibitions.

In addition to still life subjects and florals, both in still life and in gardens, Beck finds inspiration in the colorful painted metal surfaces of tin toys, which she also calls “Vintage Critters“.

Her painting “Snail Mail” (image above, bottom) has been chosen to share the cover of the upcoming book from Kennedy Publishing, Best of America, Watermedia II (more info here).

Beck maintains two blogs, a personal one called I’m painting as fast as I can… and a more general blog, aimed at the appreciation and spotlighting of various watercolor artists, titled Brush – Paper – Water.
