Shirley Quaid's art career started after she had raised her family but she is making up for lost time by painting every day. A viewer once said of her work that the soul was evident in the figurative as well as the landscape paintings. What a wonderful thing to hear!
She connects with her subjects on an emotional level as her heart strings are tugged by the beauty of the human spirit as well as our beautiful Earth.
Every new painting offers challenges to work through as edges are softened, colors are selected and the thickness of the paint is applied with brush and knife to create an evocative response from the viewer.
Her paintings have garnered numerous awards from the very beginning and have been collected throughout the United States.
She maintains a studio in Humble, TX and is represented by The Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX and is a Signature Member of the Artists of Texas.
