Carrie Graber & Juliet Fancubit

June 15th, 2010

My hubby came from a family of artist. At 74 yrs.old , my mother-in-law does various types of painting. Two years ago she taught Art classes at Mountain View College, Bukidnon until she was hired by Nanuri International School to be their Elementary and High school Principal. She’s a prolific painter and has done a local Painting exhibition. Painting is not just part of her past time and relaxation but also an expression of her passion within. It’s her way of unwinding herself from the hectic schedule in the school.

She do oil, acrylic , water color and charcoal painting. As you enter her house in Villa Ernesto, Gusa,CDO… you will be greeted with different painting works. Aboe are some of her paintings… mind you, they are displayed at her garage!

When I asked her what’s her favorite artist, she has a handful of names mentioned that some I could no longer remember. But when asked on contemporary female artist , she mentioned Carrie Graber as one of her favorites. Mom Explained that her warm tones and exquisite control of illumination creating a perfect composition of light and contrast. Her soft, realistic but also bold approach warms the viewers’ senses and creates a feeling of intimacy . Below is a sample of her famous work of arts.
