Theda Rhea, a native Texan,
studied at the Museum School of Art in Houston, Texas. Her painting career
began with a five year sojourn in Avalon, California, on Santa
Catalina Island; where she worked with internationally known
West Coast artists as she developed her distinctive style of painting.
In a three year period she won eight first place awards in
major juried competitions, including the National
Orange Show, which led to publications, museum exhibits and
one woman shows in recognized galleries.
After subsequent awards she established studios in Gallup,
New Mexico, Santa Fe, New
Mexico, La Junta, Colorado
and San Pedro
de la Cueva, Mexico, where she perfected the style that collectors
recognize as uniquely Theda Rhea.
She currently paints from her studio in San Marcos,
Theda is an accomplished instructor, demonstrator and judge
who works with a variety of media and subject matter.
