Caly Garris puts the “color” in watercolor pushing her preferred medium to the limit in creating expressive paintings of horses, wildlife and domestic animals. Her use of flowing saturated color, balanced by structural integrity and adding a dash of spirit, takes the viewer into a new awareness of animal imagery.
A signature member of the Women Artists of the West and a member Oregon Watercolor Society, Caly earned a fine arts degree from California State University, Northridge. Her award winning art has been featured in numerous galleries in Oregon, Montana, New Mexico and California and shown in several shows including the prestigious C. M. Russell Art Show in Great Falls, Montana and the Cattlemen’s Western Art show in Paso Robles, California. Her work is also found in private and corporate collections internationally. Caly lives on a cattle ranch in Oregon’s Willamette Valley where her love for animals has inspired her art.
