Basketful by Toni Avery
Basketful original by Toni Avery, 36 x 36″
“Flowers represent youth, sensuality, tenderness, splendor, passion, love, and beauty, but at the same time, they also represent the unbearable finitude of life.”
Toni Avery is an artist working primarily in the Pacific Northwest. Her images reflect the range and diversity of the surrounding landscapes from the forests, beaches, and surrounding land of the Willamette Valley, to abstracts and still life.
MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST:
After receiving her Art degree from Marylhurst University, Toni Avery worked as a Design Consultant but was never far from her love of painting and photography.
Today she uses a number of her photographs as subject matter for paintings, referring to them only as “points of departure”, but it is her vision that completes a painting.
Toni’s artwork can be seen in many public collections, as well, such as Kaiser Permanente’s “Healing Artwork Collection,” and on display at the Westside Medical Centers in Oregon.
Her artwork has been included in art and architecture of commercial buildings, including the Seaside Convention Center.
