About the Artist

Chula Beauregard is an award-winning artist, born and raised in the mountains of Colorado. She began painting in the cockpit of a small sailboat in the Bahamas in 5th grade. She enrolled in art every year since, until she graduated cum laude as a Studio Art major from Whitman College. Following college, she served for two years in Gabon, Central Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer. She has been painting in oils since 2006, pursuing her career as a professional artist in her hometown of Stemaboat Springs, CO.

Artist Statement:

The Western experience is one of contradictions as we navigate between modern progress and pure wildness.  Geographically rooted in the West, I use my art work to find a balance between these forces. In subject matter, I prefer to focus on Nature’s gifts. In artistic process, however, I intend to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary.  Using the classical approach, I apply the tools that have been tried and tested through the centuries: patterns of light and dark, color harmonies, and techniques to create illusions of space.  However, I find the modern approach to lend the freedom I need to express the intuitive sense of place: color fields, expressive mark layering, and textures that unite the painted surface. I honor the infinite Beauty of this land, while striving to lend a relevant voice in these modern times.   

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” John Muir
