Today's Featured Artist Is
Gwen Coleman Lester
Specialties:Colored Pencil Drawings and Acrylic Paintings
Focusing on Native American subject matter, the majority of Gwen's artwork are illustrations of contemporary Choctaw culture. They include illustrations of family life, dances, and stickball games. Sometimes Choctaw language is included as a design element. Gwen also has a series of illustrations of traditional Choctaw legends. The colored pencil drawings are realistic and tightly rendered, while her acrylic paintings are more loose and painterly. She also works in pastel using Native American subject matter.
Gwen is interested in all things Choctaw. She and her husband, Rod, are learning the Choctaw language through Choctaw Nation's Community Class program. This will, no doubt, provide her with more subject matter for her paintings. Her paintings have won her many awards from the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The Museum Board of Directors named her a Master Artist of the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in November 2007.
Gwen received a degree in commercial art from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Gwen and her husband, Rod Lester, produce limited edition prints of her Choctaw art through their company Native Traditions Artworks.
