2014 Community Artist - Serena Supplee

photo of Serena Supplee
The beauty, truth and freedom of canyons & rivers pulse through Serena Supplee. Thirty years of living and loving the Colorado Plateau are the current of inspiration for Serena's artwork. Her passionate palette captures the movement of rivers, the dance of clouds, the splendor of starlight, and the light on canyon walls which make the West so romantic and captivating.

Originally from Iowa, Serena graduated with a BFA from Northern Arizona University before moving to Moab, Utah. For nine years she guided trips on the Colorado, Green, and San Juan Rivers and she still rows her boat (and heart) down rivers that inspire her painting.

Always accompanied by her sketchbook and watercolors, Serena paints and makes detailed sketches on site which she later transforms into large oils back in her Moab studio.

Watch for Serena out and about in the national parks of Southeast Utah in 2014.
