JUDGE:  Dani Tupper:  “I strive to capture the beauty given by the “Master Creator”.  Dani is a signature member of various watercolor societies as well as being affiliated with numerous art centers and other art groups. Dani studied at colleges in NE and NM; started working in oils; tried her hand in acrylics and other media;  but her love is watercolor.  Even though she is self taught in watercolor, she has taken numerous workshops from well-known artists. Dani likes to experiment and to share different techniques.  Her subject material is as varied as the techniques she uses.
