"Parrot tulips ... what a grand creation! The petals look torn, yet that is the design. This brilliant red parrot tulip growing in a pot on my deck has a subtle guardian in the center of the lower petal. She stands watch over the fragile petals ... from the wind or the rain that comes with spring." — Bambi
About the Artist
Bambi was born and raised in Utah, and came to California in her early twenties. Falling in love with northern California, home is now in the historical Gold Rush community of Murphys.
Basically a self-taught artist with a handful of workshops over the years, Bambi’s style of watercolor painting can be recognized by her fine sense of detail mixed with her funny-side-of-life humor. She has been sketching as far back as she can remember and always thinking that coloring books were a very important part of childhood.
Bambi shares her life with husband Duane, who is the owner of Forest Meadows Properties , as well as her bearded collie, “Duster” and two kitties “Cowboy & Indian”. …… the photos below are Duster and the kitties.
Her original paintings are in private collections across the country and her prints appear in many galleries nationwide. Bambi’s work can be found at the Art on Main Gallery in Murphys, California; the Fine Eye Gallery in Sutter Creek, California and in the summer months at the Pinecrest Gallery in Pinecrest, California.
