Retiring but we will never tire of her beautiful artwork

Annette Paquet retires from her classes and plein air painting groups, but SDWS will always have a place in our hearts for this long time member and watercolorist.

“The environment is so beautiful,” Paquet said. “Everything is just so exquisitely beautiful. Painting is like being one with nature.”

Paquet’s work is in collections across the United States. She has been exhibited locally in a variety of juried competitions. She has also held solo and group exhibitions, juried art shows and been featured in a variety of publications.

Who could forget that STANCE she took when demonstrating in class!!

Paquet has received a number of awards, including prizes from the San Diego Watercolor Society, where she has been a member for many years. Among her accomplishments, she was one of six citywide winners in the UltraStar San Diego Art Contest of 2010. Her enlarged winning painting is on permanent display at Cinépolis Del Mar.

The longtime artist sometimes holds art shows out of her Carmel Valley home, where she has a studio. To inquire about a viewing, call 858-755-8378.
