Bernie White-Hatcher

Only since her retirement has Bernie White-Hatcher been able to focus full time on her longtime love: painting. Bernie’s busy career left little time for her to paint. 
For years, Bernie painted rural landscapes of central Illinois. As the years passed, she was a keen observer as “progress and growth”—subdivisions, strip malls and highways—changed the once-familiar landscape. The visual change in her environment, Bernie says, in turn contributed to her evolution and development as an artist.

“As my muse transformed, so did the work I produced. My perspective was mutated and transformed in reaction to the visual changes around me.

“Some of the paintings I produced became aerial perspectives of rural landscapes. Later, these aerial views continued to evolve into images that were far more abstract.”
