We are happy to welcome visiting artist Aimee Had. Mastering the art of free form whimsy, with a touch of gravitas, Lake Tahoe painter, Aimee Had, is interested in the magical undercurrent of life. Influenced by Van Gogh, Edvard Munch and Manet mixed with a little Seuss, and Hobbits of the Shire, Had is drawn toward compelling characters, and seeking what lies beneath life’s surface. Had’s inspiration comes from the natural world’s astonishing ability to surprise and delight her in the most unlikely of crevices. Like a seed taking root within a rock’s fissure, or a crack in the manufactured world, her art is an expression of spontaneous ideas cultivated into fine art. Aimee received her BA in Art from Colorado College. Collectors of Aimee’s paintings seem to be those whom love a good story, and are perhaps seeking the unusual mixed with beauty.
