serena on San Juan River
The beauty, truth, and freedom of canyons and rivers pulse through Serena Supplee. The landscapes of the Colorado Plateau and its heartbeat take form through her colorful palette. Her "on location" paintings are touched by rock, wind, fire, and ice. She paints the magnificence of canyons, the splendor of starlight, the undulating power of rivers, the towering grandeur of cottonwood trees, and the mysterious symbols of the ancient ones.
Serena on San Juan River
In canyon country, every change of light presents amazing views which flow through Serena onto her canvas in a brilliant interpretation of color, space, time, and emotion. Her canvases stimulate feelings of joy and liberation or stun you into silence.

Originally from Iowa, Serena earned her  Bachelor of Fine Arts at Northern Arizona University. Her work has appeared in more than 50 one-woman shows throughout the Southwest. She completed a series of paintings focused on the rapids and the Inner Gorge of the Grand Canyon. Serena’s first book, Inner Gorge Metaphors, features a collection of 52 of these paintings with poems. Presently she is working on a new series that starts with the temples of the Grand Canyon and leads us to places of sanctuary.

Serena works in watercolors, oils, and sculpture. She also uses the Giclee printing process, making it possible to produce a print of her paintings. Serena loves to paint plein air, outdoors on location. She also does many sketches on site which are later transformed into paintings at her Moab studio. Works in progress and finished paintings and sculptures may be seen at the studio by appointment. Two of her graceful sandstone-inspired sculptures are on public display in the City of Moab.
