BIOGRAPHY


Eleanor Reynolds was born and raised in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. She earned a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and a master's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Eleanor always loved to draw but her interest in art didn't really flourish until after she retired from teaching business education at Dodgeville High School.

The first step was to take a basic drawing course from Jeb Prazak at Metropolitan Art Gallery in Dodgeville. As she progressed thorugh the study of values, colors and techniques in a variety of media, she knew that she had found a new passion. She became a permanent workshop student at Jeb's gallery.

A true believer in life-long learning, Eleanor has taken several art workshops from professional artists:
  • Basic Etching from Larry Welo
  • Portraits in Pastel from Vincent Chiaramonte
  • Landscapes in Pastel from Sandra Place
  • Figure Painting in Pastel from Margaret Dyer
  • The Art of Oil Pastels from George Shipperley
Printmaking has become a regular medium for Eleanor as she has studied and become a workshop student at AGB Graphics under the direction of Master Printer Andrew Balkin. She has studied the different methods of the etching process, monotypes and lithography.
