Artist and Teacher - Jo Legg
I started painting in 1990 when a local
store held a 2 day oil painting class. I
thought I'd try it, and if I couldn't do it, I
just wouldn't mention to anyone that I had
I have been fascinated with painting oils
from that first day. Since I live in a rural area, I ventured out a little
farther from home to take classes in Dallas. I have taken classes
from the east to west coast with some of the best!
For the last 8 years, I have studied with Robert Warren almost
exclusively. He is, in my opinion, one of the best contemporary
artists, and an excellent teacher. He has developed a method of
painting that results in a professional looking painting for even
those without much experience.
I have incorporated his technique into my paintings, and my
classes. I like to paint florals, still-lifes, landscapes, wildlife and
portraits. There is so much beauty out there for us to see and
record that I will never get to paint it all. But, I keep trying!
I now teach for groups, in local classes, and in several
conventions across the United States. I feel so fortunate that I can
share my love of art with others.
