watercolor • oil • acrylic • mixed media

Luci ShirekCreating art is my passion. My face glows when I have a paintbrush in my hand and my mind is a whirlwind of ideas. For me, art ideas are everywhere. As I pick up leaves on a walk, photograph flowers in the garden or contemplate the stained-glass windows in church, images now turn into paintings.

My work has always been both realistic and abstract. Some works turn out as realistic as a photograph or as abstract as just shapes. I love to work in both forms; I need both the structure and the spontaneity. As a creative person, I cannot work in only one medium. Although my main focus is on watercolor painting, I also work in oil, acrylic, and mixed media and previously serigraphy and ceramics.

I teach watercolor for the University of Wisconsin Union Mini-Courses and Madison College Continuing Education. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and a "thank you" makes me smile. I also belong to numerous art groups. It takes lots of things going on at the same time to keep me happy!
