Secretary and Treasurer
A career in art was far from her mind when Wanda graduated from college with a degree in business. However, her creative side has triumphed through a long and happy collaboration with Kevin Macpherson, husband, partner, and renowned painter. Wanda has studied at the Scottsdale Artists’ School with some of the country’s best artists, and years of side-by-side instruction with Kevin have given her an artistic foundation to explore her own path. She has developed a delicate impressionistic technique and sensitive color harmonies through the keen observation of techniques learned while painting en plein air.
Wanda works in oils, painting on location throughout the United States and Europe. She is a member of the American Impressionist Society winning the “Oil Painting” award in 2000. Additionally, her paintings and technique were selected to be included in the book, “Painting With Water Soluble Oils”, currently available through Northlight Publishing. Wanda has been invited to participate in shows such as: the Plein Air Arizona – Arizona Desert Museum; American Impressionists Society; From Colorado Springs to Taos: Springs Invites Taos Best; Montgomery Museum of Art; and the Best and the Brightest of the Scottsdale Artist’s School. Her paintings have been featured in Taos Magazine, U. S. Art, and Southwest Art.
In addition to painting, her handcrafted jewelry blends sculpture and unique worldly findings to create one-of-a-kind treasures.
Wanda and Kevin have mentored painting techniques in the United States and abroad bringing their students to Italy, Greece, Turkey, France, Iceland, Norway, Spain, Mexico, New Zealand, China, and Belgium. They love sharing their artistic experiences. She has worked behind the scenes with her video camera filming the series, “Passport and Palette,” for Public Television (PBS).
Wanda is certainly bitten with ‘wanderlust’ and can be seen painting en plein air almost anywhere in the world with husband Kevin.
"All Artists are Children. I am delighted to be a part of Art Ambassador For A Colorful World. This makes me so happy to see Kevin working with the children. He always has a smile on his face and I enjoy helping on these fulfilling special projects."
