Dorene Steggell

A reflection of place has always been the muse for Dorene Steggell’s modern landscapes. Dorene’s recent works are centered around the open spaces of the Willamette Valley, a tribute to her home in Eugene, Oregon. Her creativity is divided into two focuses – oil paintings and monotypes – yet each medium feeds the other. Her loose and de-saturated monotypes allow her the freedom of expression and happenstance while her oil paintings are structured and deeply saturated with the familiar palette of Oregon.
