Willo Balfrey grew up in Durango, Colorado, a town surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, meadows, red rim rocks, trees, streams, and the beautiful colors of fall – her inspiration for her landscape paintings. Now living in Weed, California, the beauty still surrounds her with the many changing faces of the majestic mountain of Mount Shasta and the areas of Northern California and Southern Oregon. Working on location as often as possible, Willo bring the viewer into her work by painting the dramatic sense or quiet solitude found in nature.
