Denise Willing-Booher
27 x 39 inches

Denise Willing-Booher is the two-time People’s Choice award-winning artist at the Art Sales and Rental Gallery sponsored Wet Paint Day at Applewood. She transforms common place subjects into dynamic watercolor paintings, taking our human perception of nature further into simple expressive shapes and lines. Utilizing creative composition, stroke, and color, she makes the commonplace captivating. Her show draws us into the wonders of dawn and dusk.

Denise was born in Flint, Michigan and took her first art class at the Flint Institute of Arts in the 5th grade. The encouragement that she received in that class set her on the path to becoming a noted and experienced watercolor artist. She received her BFA from the University of Michigan with post graduate work at Eastern Michigan University and Wayne State University. Denise resides in Fenton with her husband and two children.

Denise, the current President of the Michigan Watercolor Society, paints, teaches, and displays her work in juried, solo, and group shows. She has won regional and local juried and people’s choice awards. Her work is in numerous corporate and private collections.

September/October Featured Artist
Pamela O’Neil
Artist Reception


Pamela O’Neil
Ice Drop
20 1/8 x 20 inches

Pamela O’Neil, was born and raised in Owosso and now resides in Hamburg, Michigan. She describes herself as a self-taught abstract realist inspired by spiritual guidance. She prefers larger canvases and loves using textures and mud mediums to express life from color, shape, life experiences, love, and pain. With an extensive resume of poetry, writing, art, awards, gallery and solo shows, professional art fairs, teaching, and on-going commissioned work, she says she is honored to be called a professional artist.

From the artist’s statement: “I never see things normally and paint from my soul the strokes of color that my mind’s eye feels-not sees! The passion runs so deep that I will get lost for hours in the ‘zone.’ It is cathartic and a true gift from my higher spirit that I daily am grateful for.”
