Bobbie Stern - Spring 2006

bobbiestern Bobbie Stearn was the Featured Artist for the 2006 Spring Tempe Festival of the Arts. Bobbie’s arts career is multi-faceted. She has been a ballet dancer, a well-known interior designer and is now a visual artist and published writer. She started painting in 1964 in Orange County, California, studying with local artists and teachers. Now retired and living in Sedona, with her husband Harvey, Bobbie devotes her time to writing and painting. Her style is impressionistic with a vibrant pallet. She works in oils, watercolors, and pastels. Her subjects are the figure both nude and draped, still life compositions and Sedona’s magnificent landscapes, from which we chose her oil painting “Reflections at Red Rock Crossing.”
