Having grown up in the woods, Billie Rosenberger is inspired and enchanted with the quiet and slower pace of nature and all the colors, textures and smells. Clean air. Restfulness. She conveys her delight with vibrant, bold colors as well at portraying soft atmospheric environments. She paints her favorite scenes of trees, forests, land and waterscapes. Each painting has multiple layers to convey the aliveness she sees and feels.
She spent her life in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, playing in the woods as a child, walking in the woods as an adult. She feels fortunate to have had a wide variety of art teachers: local artists as well as well-known artists. All with different voices, conveying the same principles of painting.
Her art organizations include Crossroads Art Center, Shenandoah Valley Art Center, Virginia Watercolor Society and Arts Counsel of the Valley and has won awards at Fall Foliage Festival in Waynesboro, VA, Art in the Park in Staunton VA and The Art League, Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA.
It is her hope to share her love of nature and color and to encourage others to pursue art. As her teacher Ray Yoder would say: TALENT = TIME + DESIRE. In other words, if you really want to learn to paint (desire), then put in the time to practice.
