Good color sings. It is melodious, aroma-like, never over-baked.
Luanne Stovall is an artist specializing in color, with a passion for modern design and the creative practice.
Luanne believes that Art is fundamental to our quality of life. Art inspires us, communicates ideas, provides aesthetic beauty, and transforms our lives with its expressive power. Her obsession for color stems from early training as an art teacher's daughter, fused with a painter's deep fascination for the phenomenon of light and the complexities of visual perception.
Luanne has an MFA from Tufts University. She is a lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin in the College of Fine Arts and the School of Architecture, where she has taught Living Color, Advanced Color: Strategies & Solutions, the Art & Art History Core Color Modules, and Core Design Foundations. She has given color lectures, workshops, and classes at many locations including UT Austin, Wellesley College, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Contemporary Austin.
Luanne's paintings, collages, and paper cutouts are in numerous public and private collections including the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, TX; Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi; El Paso Museum of Art; San Antonio Museum of Art; Moakley Cancer Center, Boston; Estee Lauder Collection, and the Neiman Marcus Signature Store in Boston. She is developing the Hero’s Journey Capsule Collection as a Pop-Up Gallery concept with the goal to make Art for Daily Life.
