Twyla Gettert in Voyage MIA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Twyla Gettert.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
My earliest recollections and some of the most imprinted memories of painting go back to when I was around six years old.  My mother, an amateur painter, would sit down with me and a tray of watercolor paints with an opening question “What shall we paint today?”.  Our focus would usually be on landscapes around our Iowa home — the trees and garden in our yard.  On rainy days, it would be some sort of still-life; although, I really didn’t know what “still-life” meant at the time.  Those experiences gave me the basic tools and vision for shape and color.  She had only the primary colors in her paint set, so I learned to mix secondary colors at an early age.
