At Heritage Art Galleries, we represent and showcase a variety of paintings and fine art prints from many best-selling Florida and Canadian artists.
Award-winning abstract expressionist, Lois Perdue has lived in South Florida her entire life and after raising two children and retiring from two other creative careers-- journalism and public relations-- she began another artistic endeavor: painting abstract art.
Her signature style has become predominantly bold, vibrant landscape abstract scenes usually involving water, perhaps, because of her life-long proximity to the sea; as well, many of her paintings show mountainous terrain
reflecting scenes of her travels throughout the world.
Although Lois paints on watercolor paper, canvas and wood panel, she loves the magic of a plastic paper called YUPO. It has a slick surface unlike watercolor paper and when it meets water media, colors virtually explode. She begins all her first layers with watercolor paints, powdered watercolor pigments, watercolors inks, glazes, and markings to establish a foundation and then proceeds to acrylic paints, inks, charcoal, pen and, of course, her technique of using her old YUPO paintings as a collage in her new paintings. When finished, her paintings may have 10, 15 or more layers,
all each having been "set" with varnish to hold the colors.
