Trish Weeks is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati,, Design, Art, Architecture and Planning with a BS in Design.  She built a successful career in corporate and residential interior design before her painting career began in 1994.  Trish has received awards in numerous juried shows on a local, regional and national level and has been represented by galleries in Ohio, Kentucky, South Carolina, Michigan and New Mexico.  Her work is included in private and corporate collections throughout the world.  Trish has been invited to participate in June in two museum events in Cincinnati.
Trish draws inspiration from her experiences in the Midwest and the Carolinas where she spends much of her time.  She also brings a more global perspective by layering memories from travels to paint in France; as well as trips to other locations in Europe, India, China, Japan and Nepal.  Many of her trips include her portable equipment so she may paint out in the environments she is experiencing.

Trish Weeks states about her own work: “I am drawn to organic landscapes that seem to breathe and vibrate with amazing energy.  My signature work portrays expressionist views of nature; created by combining simple compositions and complex layers of color. This is achieved using a palette knife, which allows me to intensify the impact and clarity of the colors.”

“Those who have experienced my work routinely comment on how good it makes them feel.  My palette knife, color and liberal use of paint create a vibrant, tactile experience that has been described as ‘a dance with color’.”
