Artist Avon Waters seeks to find harmonic links between all things – living or inanimate – using music throughout his process. His work is in private and corporate collections across the country. He is the vice president of the Indiana Plien Air Painters Association, IPAPA.
At the age of six he was influenced by Avant Garde art, local artists and the work of his aunt, print maker Ann Parker, and the South American rubbings of his uncle Avon Neal, a folklorist artist/writer. His formal art education at Indiana University began in Fine Art Photography under the tutorage of art photographers Henry Holms Smithand Reginald Heron. His Master of Arts is from Ball State University.
Avon’s knowledge of nature, and use of its themes, might be explained by his Midwestern upbringing, but actually it is more likely that this rural-ness was augmented by his study of plant sciences while studying art and photography at Indiana University.
His works range from representational drawings to abstraction. Avon and his wife Doris live in Indiana.
