Her art has been strongly affected by the local culture and nature in California since she moved here in 2017. In turbulent times, Wei-Ting wants to bring a calm and comforting vision of nature to more people through her art.

Gallery Painter’s Corner:

November 2022 PortfolioHelene Roylance began her love of art at a very young age. Whether it was drawing, painting, sculpture or photography, the challenge was always how to create something, not whether it could be done! Her love of art deepened with the chance to study abroad in Italy, hauling her camera everywhere she went, taking art classes in Parma, and seeing the rich art history in Europe up close.

In 2014 Helene discovered her love of watercolor, using vibrant colors to recreate the beauty she found all around her. Inspired by the photographs and memories of her travels, she enjoys the challenge of using watercolor to try capture the beauty and mood of a location. Helene’s watercolors and colorfully painted ceramic works can be seen and purchased at the LAA Gallery at 2155 3rd Street in Livermore.

Anuja Goyal is the Newest Artist that has been juried into the Livermore Art Association Gallery. She enjoys paintings with a theme of nature, abstract, gods, music, animals, birds, water, . . . okay, everything is fair game for her! Anuja’s latest theme is adding clay to her paintings to give that physical depth to them.
