Connie Chadwell
Wherever there are people, there are subjects for Connie Chadwell's artwork. Connie says, "I have a lifelong fascination with the figure and never miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life. In the case of dancers or other 'fast movers,' I usually do quick gestures, then paint final versions from memory. Some of my best gesture drawings have been done on napkins in bars, restaurants or places where people gather."

Connie teaches figure drawing classes at Kerrville Arts and Cultural Center in Kerrville, Texas. One of Connie's best figure drawings appeared in the North Light book, Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing.
