Willo Balfrey grew up in Durango, Colorado. She now lives in Siskiyou County, California. She draws upon the mountains, forests, meadows and streams for inspiration. Working on location whenever possible, she brings the viewer into her work by painting the dramatic sense of quiet solitude found in nature. Willo paints in both pastel and oil, and also teaches art. She is a Master Pastelist with the International Pastel Societies and a Distinguished Pastelist with the Pastel Society of the West Coast, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America–New York, Pastel Artists of Oregon, and the Northwest Pastel Society. Willo has been juried into many shows across the county. Her work was published in the book “Pure Pastels–Contemporary Works by Today’s Top Artists,” as well as numerous other Artist publications.
