Vernita Bridges Hoyt

For a lifetime, I have been passionate about art and design.

As a child my first two oil paintings, an old house and a dog family, foretold my future in architecture and animal art. My journey followed a curvy path while I painted part time through marriage, motherhood, real estate brokerage, business management, and the study and practice of Architecture. In 2005 I came full circle back to studio art and daily painting and established myself as a professional artist with portraits of children recognized by local art league awards.

I am a co-founder of Artists of Texas. I was a founding member of Art Helping Animals and was juried into the original Daily Painters Gallery in 2006. I hold memberships in Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America, Watercolor Art Society Houston, and I am a Signature member of Artists of Texas.

A fifth generation native Texan, I am deeply entwined in the land and lore as I paint the sauce of Texas™ and create an art collage of my life. Finding joy in the process, I design ... I draw ... I paint."
