100 Paintings of Oakland

Artist: Meredith Steele

Holiday Sales? YES

Work: 100 Paintings of Oakland is a project I have been working on for the past year or so. This series was inspired by walks around my neighborhood and quickly expanded into sights that I photographed all over the city, then painted in my home studio. I am donating 20 percent of the profits from this project to various local non-profit organizations.

About: I am originally from North Carolina, but relocated to the Bay Area in 2009. I have been an art teacher for 20 years, most recently teaching in the Upper School at Bentley School in Lafayette. I left teaching this year to focus more time on my painting. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Savannah College of Art and Design and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Winthrop University. When I’m not painting I am often walking my German Shepherd around the Glenview neighborhood of Oakland, were I live.
