Spring Art Exhibit featuring Ally Benbrook

Though San Diego artist Ally Benbrook spent her career involved with fabric design and fiber dyeing, she didn't pick up a paintbrush until well after her 50th birthday, when she took a watercolor class with her 80-yr-old mom.

Since then she has taken many workshops with nationally recognized artists, working hard to catch-up with her peers. Her work regularly wins awards at the San Diego Watercolor Society, and in 2013 alone has been juried into more than 8 national and international exhibitions throughout the US. Her paintings are included in private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, England, Sweden, and Germany.

Whether a portrait or a “moment in time”, Ally's work resonates with the power of the human connection to animals, nature, and our own personal histories. Her intrinsic awareness of design and color, combined with the flowing independent nature of watermedia, create the kind of art that will be enjoyed day after day.

Her work can be seen locally at Spanish Village Art Center Studio 16B in Balboa Park, and is shown regularly at the San Diego Watercolor Society. She also shows at Artwalk San Diego twice a year.

Of course her work can also be seen on-line at www.allybenbrook.com or by appointment at her studios in El Cajon and Spanish Village.
