Nel Dorn Byrd, AWS, NWS

 I am a watercolor painter and have exhibited my  work in national and international shows throughout the US.    Formal studies include  Midland Institute of Fine Arts, Richland College, and the University of Texas at Dallas. I have  studied at home and abroad with many watercolor instructors, traveling and painting in twelve different countries.   My paintings have been included in several publications and books, and in 2003 an article on my interior paintings was published in the summer issue of Watercolor. I paint in a loose, impressionistic style and paint a variety of subjects. I  co-operated a successful art gallery and frame shop for twenty one years.
