In her new work Courtney: Love, Courtney captures the look of a person thinking about someone they love. In this series of oil paintings on paper, she isolates the subject’s face against an unpainted background because she likes the way the three-dimensional subject looks and feels against the clean paper. This collection features members of her own family sharing private and intimate emotions. She hopes that the public will feel warm and fuzzy engaging these contemporary portraits.
Courtney lives and works in Dallas, TX. She received her BFA from Texas Christian University and her MA and MFA from The University of Dallas. She was an Artist-in-Resident at The Fairmont Hotel in Dallas and a three-time Hunting Art Prize Finalist.
