Trice Tolle, awarding winning fine artist, will be the featured presenter at the Verdugo Hills Art Association meeting on Friday, April 6. The Association meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Citibank Community Room, 2350 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose, and is open to the public for a $5 donation.
Tolle's paintings reflect the beauty, harmony and mystery found in nature. Her works are intended to provoke a feeling or sense of place rather than the actual scene. To convey emotion she applies simple shapes and bright colors to her canvas. Tolle's paintings lie somewhere between reality and abstract and are described by the artist herself as "referential abstractions."
Since receiving her degree in fine arts from Cal State Northridge, Tolle continues her art studies at UCLA and the Otis Art Institute along with private studies and workshops from great contemporary artists including Robert Kay, Marcia Burtt and Joseph Burgess. When not painting, Tolle is teaching at the Artist in Residence Program for the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Atelier in Chatsworth and the Encino Community Center.
