About the artist
Letitia Watts creates art that explores the world of dreams and nature. Vibrant colors, a blend of materials and a combination of painting, drawing, collage, cyanotype and printmaking allow her to express her many interests. In her art she blends the inner and outer worlds. Energy, gestural lines and brushstrokes, abstraction, collage create an expressive and unique body of work. Her work has been described as “enchanting, whimsical and joyful.”
Letitia lived in many places in her early life with her father’s military career in the US and for 3 years in Jamaica. After retiring from the Army, her family settled in Santa Barbara, California where she still has strong ties. Since 1991 she has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico and is influenced by both beautiful Santa Fe skies and shimmering ocean memories.
She has a BA degree in Painting and Printmaking from San Diego State University and has continued her education with many workshops and individualized study with diverse artists. She is a member of the Santa Fe Society of Artists and exhibits with them from April-October.
I have always been fascinated by the other creatures that share our earth. Birds, fish and animals often appear in my dreams and help connect my art to deeper level of awareness. To hear their messages I have to let go and listen deeply.
My work comes from a combination of my dreams and nature, poetry and mythology. I love to read, words often help me go deeper into a piece, I love to combine a variety of materials and techniques. My art brings me so much joy and connection.
I hope my journey can inspire you on your journey.
