Meet Texas Artist Ann Hoffpauir

Ann Hoffpauir is a full-time artist from Orange, Texas where she lives.  Ms. Hoffpauir paints in a contemporary realistic style.  Major themes in her work in addition to her depiction of the landscape include animals, with an interaction with nature.  Her painting style blends with a love of nature and its forms, floral displays, animals and people, with brilliant lights and strong darks.   Ms. Hoffpauir finds the spontaneous qualities of watercolors lend it

very well to a fresh painterly approach, appearing effortless.  The same can be said for her oil paintings.  Those qualities show along with her confident and enthusiastic brushwork.  It’s not just the brushwork or color, but the painting as a whole, must engage the viewer.  The painting should convey

a sense of mystery and beauty.  She has taught at many local organizations and private schools and has conducted several workshops and teaches weekly art classes at her home studio. Ann has been featured in Western Art Collector, Southwest Art and Art of the West magazines. She was featured in Western Art Collector’s – Art of the Horse 2011.   For more information she may be contacted at 409-745-2473 or email her at

Meet Texas Artist June Holloway

I was born in England where I received a University of London degree in Art. I have been painting and drawing all my life and at the age of  twelve  I received a beautiful box of oil paints. When I became the mother of twin boys my oil painting was curtailed, little boys and oil paints do not mix. My local art supply clerk suggested that I switch to pastels it was love at first sight. At the age of thirty five I moved with my three sons to America I carried one suitcase containing my cloths, and a backpack containing all my art supplies. We settled in Wichita Kansas and I found a wonderful art community there, I joined many of the art groups and I continued my art career. I am a portrait and still life artist and I have had portrait commissions in England, America and Guatemala. My work has won awards in national competitions in Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado and Texas. Although I have worked in all mediums my favorites are still pastel and graphite pencil. I am now at a point in my life when I can do what pleases me.  I love to paint and I love to pass on the knowledge that I have garnered through the years. I now have about thirty students who share my passion for painting. My hopes for the future is that I can continue to paint and draw and that my paintings will be enjoyed by my clients and my viewers for many years  to come.

Meet Texas Artist Shirley Quaid


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.

Meet Artist, Nancy Medina


The great American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "The Earth laughs in flowers...." Nancy Medina has found a way to express that statement through her art. Named one of the best floral and botanical artists by American Art Collector magazine, Nancy is an instructor for the Dallas Arboretum whose paintings are collected around the world.

Known for her bold, impressionistic florals and large container gardens that are immediately eye-catching, Nancy teaches a loose, bright technique that evokes brilliant color.

Nancy's love of art and gardening originated on her childhood farm in Scurry, Texas, where her parents were organic gardeners. Her earliest memories are of standing barefoot beneath 11 foot sunflower stalks in her family's garden. Nancy studied art history and illustration at the University of London, King's College, Chelsea, and oil painting and color theory at Texas A&M University. Today she resides with her husband and their 4 pugs in Flower Mound, Texas, where she paints daily from Flower Mound Art Studio.

Nancy has worked professionally in design and publishing for over 20 years. In 2013, she retired from her 6-figure corporate job to pursue her art and teaching full time. Her original oil paintings have been featured in print and Web publications and on the covers of magazines. When she is not in the art studio, Nancy is a volunteer for Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue, the largest pug rescue charity in the nation. You can contact Nancy directly at
