C. Mercedes Walls Studio
Welcome to my page. This is where you can get some
background info about me
before you visit my virtual galleries (linked below).
I live with my husband and children in an old farmhouse
in the Delaware countryside. It's a beautiful area, quiet,
I was born in New Hampshire and raised in the Boston
area and Long Island's north shore (with a brief
diversion to North Carolina) My five brothers and
sisters and I grew up in a child's paradise.
My fine arts training started in early childhood,
trips to the art museum, drawing sessions with
my grandfather. My formal training is limited to
a few art classes at Washington College
in Maryland and SUNY StonyBrook, NY.
I majored and received my degree in
Sociology and took a 10 year detour into the world
of counseling in the areas of substance abuse and adult
corrections although I always painted on the side.
I work in many different mediums, mainly oils, pastels and
water colors. My style is somewhat representational, realistic.
I love intense color so at times I like to bump up the contrast and
saturate my paintings in bright colors,
making the subject slightly more abstract.
My work hangs in private homes, corporate offices, community
buildings and even the local hospital. My work can be viewed at
Angelucci Fine Wood Working & Stained Glass Studio, along the
riverwalk in downtown Milford, DE. I am a member of the
Mispillion Art League of Greater Milford and have entered pieces
in the Tyringham Art Show in the Bershire mountain area of
Massachusetts. I have exhibited at the Biggs Museum of American
Art in Dover, DE.
At times I even paint for pleasure...a selfish pursuit
but I have learned to live with the guilt.
There are several new pieces hung in the Alison Wing of the gallery.
Most of the paintings you'll find there are for sale.
The Stephanie wing is more of a retrospective of my work,
pieces that are no longer for sale.
Thank you for visiting my gallery, enjoy!
If you're using a "dial-up" connection, the pictures load a bit slowly
but you might find it's worth the wait!
