Hi, I’m Gwen! A professional Artist and Art Coach who empowers artists to recognize their unique artistic style, establish a marketing strategy, develop a strong success mindset and create a life they love.
As a child, renowned international artist Gwen Fox was allowed to express her creative vision while drawing and painting on the white wallpaper canvas at her family’s eastern Tennessee farmhouse. For years, her mother repapered the hallway – often weekly – to give her daughter space to display her gift, later regretting the loss of those early works. Today, Gwen Fox is known for her abstract expression and paintings that reflect life within layers of unexpected color and texture capturing familiar images with both energy and passion. Her work has won numerous awards and been the inspiration for New York poet S. David. You’ll find Fox’s original work displayed in the famous Fermoy Art Gallery, Kings Lynn, England, hanging alongside work by His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, and in the Catherine Lorillard Wolf Art Club in New York. Gwen has been the featured artist in one person shows in Hawaii, England, Washington D.C., Taos, NM and Colorado, where she currently lives for part of each year.
This talented painter is equally gifted as a teacher, and conducts workshops in Canada, England and throughout the United States. Gwen’s goal is to help her students tap into their inner strengths as artists, and discover their intuitive creativity. In relating her own personal story of self-discovery, Gwen guides her workshop students with grace and respect while helping them discard the limits placed by outside influences. This allows each student to reach the core essence of their talent and welcome in new possibilities. A Gwen Fox Workshop is filled with artistic knowledge of Design, Color and Value. Gwen provides a safe environment for artists to take risks while developing their personal artistic style. Confidence, courage, and belief in self are hallmarks of a Fox-taught workshop.

Art opens images of the world which have been seen by the eyes of the artist’s soul… creating a new world to love.
The layers of life are what intrigue me… how thoughts and actions form our being and shape who we are.
What seems at first glance to be abstract when viewed again are many layers telling a story.
My paintings are reflections of life, each filled with layers of color and texture which reveal ones essence.
