“Life without art is impossible to imagine. Art is everywhere and at all times. The only challenge is to see it. My job is to create beauty out of ordinary objects so that people see with new eyes. To be able to change a point of view or to lift a consciousness is a gift – and what could be better than
a gift of loveliness. A painting is a message from the soul. All that an artist is has been revealed in the painting or sculpture. So a work of art has a lot to say – on the surface and deep within. The vibrations of the colors, subject and design affect all observers. My watercolor technique is unusual but natural to myself. I paint one object at a time, finish it and relate all the other elements to that one object, trusting that the object is right and true. The painting is finished inch by inch.
Sometimes I switch to a much faster technique for the fun and freedom of expression. My sculpture is another dimension in my creative self. My subjects stretch from serious angels to humorous mermaids.”

Audean’s dynamic watercolor still lifes and sculptures are in private collections world wide. Solo exhibitions in Manhattan, Vermont and Pennsylvania have been complemented by group shows in Palm Beach, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Hong Kong, where her watercolor skill is highly valued. Featured in American Artist and Victoria magazines, many of her works have also been translated into lithographs. Audean’s children’s books have created an appreciative younger audience for her humor and painting skills. She is a graduate of the University of the Arts (formerly the Philadelphia College of Art). Audean is a world traveler and always takes paints on her journeys.
