Curriculum Vitae



Sally Blevins is a Yolo County, California native who has drawn for as long as she can remember. Her monoline figurative drawing in pen and ink is superbly fluid and sensual, with economy of line. Blevins' watercolor and oil paintings are vibrant glazes of rich transparent color. The human figure, Plein Air California scenery, and still life subjects appear in her creations.
