More about the artist: Mehmert is known for her moving paintings and sculptures. She creates cards, journals, and prints from her original works of art--known as "Notes from the Heart." She also accepts commissions to paint beloved animals and scenes. Enjoy browsing the galleries and shopping for your favorite images.

Mehmert has been painting and teaching watercolor classes for more than 20 years. She studied at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, as well as with several nationally acclaimed artists. She taught art classes at the Bountiful/Davis Art Center in Bountiful, Utah and displayed her art during faculty shows.Her art has graced the pages of Horse & Rider magazine and the cover of the Equine Affaire 2008/2009 program--as well as the cover of the Mountain Communities phone directory.

Mehmert also displayed her work in the juried Loveland, Colorado Sculpture Show, at the Ramon Research Fund for the Morris Animal Foundation in Denver, at the Hiwan Museum in Evergreen. Mehmert's bronze sculpture will be placed at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Anschutz-Fitzsimmons campus.

Mehmert continues a lifelong love affair with drawing and painting. "My grandmother gave me a set of oil paints at age 8, and I've been painting ever since," Mehmert says.

Another of Mehmert's lifelong obsessions is the horse. She paints, draws, sculpts, and occasionally has a chance to ride horses near her mountain home. Horses are subjects in many of Mehmert's paintings. See all the horse images online at:http://shop.lamehmert.com/Horses_c30.htm

Mehmert began teaching art in her home studio to share her love of art, animals, and wildlife. She has helped many students begin their own art careers. Her strong feelings about her work are contagious.

"Painting is a very personal expression of my perception of a particular moment. The painting must have spirit and substance and engage the viewer," Mehmert says. I work in both oil and watercolor, and love each for their unique qualities. I really don't favor one form over the other, but throw myself into whatever medium fits the subject I'm trying to portray--whether it's watercolor, oil, clay, or cloth. Art is a way of life for me, and I have to keep at it for a sense of balance in this fast-paced world. It is a never-ending source of joy to me."
