Cecy Turner is an award-winning artist and a Texas native. She graduated from Vanderbilt University and did post-graduate study in art at University of North Texas and has studied under numerous accomplished artists in both oil and watercolor. Feature articles about her have appeared in Art of the West Magazine, Artists Magazine, Watercolor Artist Magazine (cover), The Best of Flower Painting, and she was chosen by Southwest Art Magazine as an “Artist to Watch.” Cecy holds Signature Memberships in American Impressionist Society, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, National Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Outdoor Painters Society, American Women Artists and Plein Air Artists Colorado. She is a Fellow of American Artists Professional League and Master Signature Member and Past President of Women Artists of the West. She has won awards in numerous juried competitions. Cecy prefers to paint plein air, and since she began spending half of every year in Colorado her plein air painting has increased to almost daily. She delights in discovering a place she can see something very special about and convey that feeling to others in her work, making it her own. The effects of light and atmosphere are her favorite things to capture in paint. She has enjoyed teaching classes and workshops in both oil and watercolor.
