  "Sisters In Art"
Artwork of Karen Jamrose and Renea Eshleman

Karen and Renea are not sisters, as in having the same parents, but related by their passion for art and the creative process. They met as members of the Trenholm Artists Guild (TAG), working together on the board and in various volunteer positions. As the fun and friendship grew, so did their shared art workshops, trips, and experiences. They adopted the sisters-in-art (SIA) term as a greeting of endearment.

We hope when you view the exhibit, you will appreciate and enjoy the diverse subject matter, mediums, and approaches to creating our artwork

Karen Jamrose

Growing up in West Virginia, I loved being outside witnessing the changing colors and light patterns of the seasons. Observing the beauty of nature and the ever-changing landscape inspires me to paint. Today, I paint in en plein air and in the studio, from reference photos I take while hiking with my dogs, always hoping to capture and share a moment of inspiration in a painting. Painting and creating in several mediums gives me the quiet time I cherish to re-energize.

 

Renea Eshleman

I MUST make art. I especially enjoy creating nature compositions from photographs I take while traveling around the beautiful state of South Carolina. I strive to lure the viewer into wanting to "be there" in the painting to look for what is not obvious. My art includes representational, dream compositions, and some objective abstract. Having begun painting in traditional transparent watercolor, I mostly paint now on non-traditional surfaces using a combination of liquid and tube watercolor and acrylic paint.
