Tiete Lycklama is an internationally acclaimed and award winning watercolorist and oil painter. Watercolors and oil are both magnificently framed. Her vibrant colors and vivid subject matter have delighted patrons for years.
Regarding her journey and experience, in Tiete's own words:
I was born in the Netherlands and came to the States in 1982 with my husband and three young children. I have worked as a farmer, RN, housewife and artist. Painting has always been a joy, and I find it very fulfilling. My strengths are color and shape. I enjoy contrasting lights and darks. Painting for me is a way to express feelings I can't put words to, and I hope the viewer experiences some of these feelings in my paintings. I thank my Creator for this ability, and I look forward to many more years of painting.
I had formal instruction from Jo Taylor. Skip Lawrence, Judi Betts, Ken Hosmer, Don Andrew, Dan Burt, Pat Deadman, Doug Walton, Sheila Parson, Christopher Shink.
I have received several awards in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Louisiana. My paintings are sold throughout the United States and in Holland.
