Beloved and admired by students, peers and art professionals, Connie Winters is known as one of Southeast’s finest painters of impressionist art. Her prolific, critically acclaimed portfolio spans decades, offering clients and collectors the art which suits their specific interests and desires. Winters’ affinity for the beauty of color – its capacity to capture a moment in time, to engage and challenge both herself and the viewer, and to elevate the senses beyond the temporal – displays her finest attribute.

“I see so much color. I’m passionately drawn to it,” she eagerly explains, “I think I see more than most people; while some would look at a road and see gray asphalt, I see shades of lavender, blue and even red. It’s just the way it appears to me.” – Connie Winters

Winters’ gift for color immediately draws viewers into a transcendent place where, for example, she has captured on canvas the lush splendor of spring gardens or the intense contrast of light on a still life, using rich, brilliant hues. A passionate gardener, she cultivates her arbors, paths and flowers, encouraging color as on her canvas. She also paints intimate interiors, sunny landscapes and riots of flowers, using color as a way of “expressing happiness”. Over the years, she has nurtured an affection for France (especially the area of Dordogne), further challenging her range of subject matter and palette of color.

Although Winters has painted most of her life, she launched her professional career as a painter after twenty years as owner of an antique business. She took on the endeavor with seriousness and studied with such notable artists as the late Phillip Moose, winner of Pulitzer Prize for Art; the late Shirley Markham; the late Alice Steadman; the late Constantine Chatov; Mark Chatov; Alice Williams; the late Henry Barnes; Quang Ho; Kevin McPherson and C.W. Mundy.

Spoken as a dedicated advocate of impressionist art, Winters is a rare talent that closely resembles the Original Impressionists of the late 19th / early 20th century. Winters generously and enthusiastically imparts her knowledge and experience as a sought-after instructor. She has shared her love of France by offering workshops in the rural regions of Provence and Dordogne. There, she and her students have found joy and beauty in the immersion of French culture, especially in wild masses of flowers and bucolic landscapes at every turn. Winters hosts workshops at her vibrant atelier located in her home in Matthews, North Carolina, as well as at several Art Galleries and Councils throughout the region.
