              Wyoming Artist, Candace W. Head’s

whimsical watercolor paintings overflow with unconditional love, lots of joy and captivating color. They are melodious and sweet but still poignant and ethereal. Viewing Candace’s paintings feels like being on a vast plain while the wind and centuries blow eternally across the grasses. Simple folk art designs such as moons, stars, suns, wildflowers, and animals most often accompany Northern Plains Indian people, the focus of her work, and occasionally a cowboy or a cowgirl, as well.-- Tim James, teacher, Columbia Basin College

Candace, who has always loved beauty and art, began drawing and painting twelve years ago following a 16-year highly successful career in quiltmaking. Her quilts have won many ribbons including Best of Show at the Houston Quilt Festival (known as the World’s Fair of Quilts), and have been shown in Europe. They have appeared on the covers of national quilt magazines, have been included in Lang Graphics calendars, address books and on greeting cards.

Candace says, “There was a strong ‘Little House on the Prairie’ influence in my early paintings. Then in 1996, I fell madly in love with the Northern Plains Indian people, especially the Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyenne. I read many books about them; my favorite is Stone Song by Win Blevins. These people, their story, and this area of Wyoming move me in ways too deep and personal to put into words. My paintings speak for me. People often tell me it is the colors I use that attract them to my work.”

Her watercolor paintings have been shown at Grey Fox Gallery, Bozeman, MT, J & K Custom Framing & Deerfield Gallery, Buffalo, WY, Martinsen Gallery, Sheridan College, Sheridan, WY, and the Story Art Station, Story, WY. They are online at www.candacehead.com.

   Her paintings and quilts are in corporate and private collections across the nation.

Chokecherry Studio, where Candace paints, is located in her home, a 68-year old log cabin in a small mountain community in the foothills of Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains. She has two grown sons, seven gorgeous grandchildren, and a passion for art, gardens, flowers and books.
