The Wellington Art Society will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at a new venue, the gymnasium at Village Park off Pierson Road. There will be a meet and greet, followed by a brief meeting and a demonstration by well known wildlife artist Deborah LaFogg.
LaFogg grew up in Connecticut, where as a child she painted woods and swamps near her house. She had no formal training until attending art college, majoring in advertising and illustration. After graduation, she moved to Florida and was a freelance photographer. She presently works for a newspaper as a special sections designer.
LaFogg paints daily and loves going out into the field and coming face to face with nature’s wild animals and scenery. She works in pastels, acrylics and oils and has studied with world-renowned pastel artists. In 2011, she received the Masters Circle Award from the International Association of Pastel Societies. LaFogg is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of North Florida, an associate member of the Society for Animal Artists and an associate member of Audubon Artists and many other societies.
