Bobbe’s personal journey with art began as a creative child in a small, rural area of southwestern Ohio. Ten years ago, she moved to Missoula to be near her daughter and grandchildren. Once here, she started a small business called The Art of Good Food. In 2017, she earned “Certification” with the Montana Arts Council in their artrepreneur program. Along with keeping up with the grand kids, the interactions of teaching watercolor, pastel, and oil classes through several venues and private lessons in the Missoula area keeps Bobbe busy and happy.
Favorite Quote: “Often, in my mind, I have pictured a great blank canvas, and in my imagination I have seen it transformed into the masterpiece of my dreams. Memory has conjured the subject and imagination has fashioned it. How I wish I could show you one of those pictures. They are very broad in treatment and there is no detail to distract the eye; yet the tiniest of incident is there if you look – the glint of a dragonfly’s wing over the water, and the blue-green of the hedge sparrow’s eggs in the smooth hollow of the nest. The colours cannot be found in tubes – they are taken from the fields and flowers, and are mixed with light and air.” — Edward Seago
