Trish Biddle is published internationally, and is collected around the world. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, American artist Trish Biddle studied at the Dallas Institute of Art, before beginning her career as an illustrator and textile designer. Her process of drawing, painting and designing melded onto canvases, creating romantic images and her unmistakable Art Deco figurative paintings.
Her expertise in capturing nature and light creates richly colored, breath-taking canvases. With a well-defined style, broad, romantic strokes and vibrant color, Trish paints figurative, floral, fashion icons and children’s art. She travels the world and enjoys translating her experiences into oil on canvas.
Showcasing her sense of design, Trish captures the Art Deco style of fashion, elegance, sophistication and the simplicity of the era. Tamara De Lempicka who defined Art Deco painting as we know it, Argentinean tango dancers and depression era dance marathons have all inspired Trish’s vintage, figurative paintings. The faces are obscured purposely to allow the viewer to identify with the images of the graceful dancers their own romantic notions. Backgrounds are evidence of textile, ironwork and architectural designs extracted from her own designs and travels. Trish currently resides in Westlake Texas.
Trish Biddle paintings are in corporate and private collections around the world, and she has been published internationally by Encore Art Group – Win Devon, Canadian Art Prints, Portal. Her art is available at most major retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Wal-mart, Target, Tuesday Morning, Michaels, TJ Maxx, and e-tailer art.com. Trish has had over $1 million in retail sales and been commissioned by Hilton hotels, Churchill Downs, Westminster Kennel Club and Del Mar Thoroughbread Club. Actress Eva Longoria Parker is a fan of Trish’s work, and used her art for her charity, Padres Contra El Cancer in Los Angeles.
Degas’s transition to modern subject matter, evident in The Steeplechase, was a long and gradual one, not an overnight conversion. Before he left Italy, he had made drawings of street characters and paintings of fashionable horse-riders, but always on a small scale.
In Paris in the early 1860s, his pictures of French racing events broke new ground both for their decidedly contemporary subject matter and for their surprising viewpoints and bold colours, which preceded the canvases of similar scenes by his renowned contemporary Édouard Manet.

Tahiti, which is 2,400 mile due South Honolulu, is the archetypal South Sea Island, the granddady of all the legends and object of the dreams of many generations of bored city people. The very name is synonmymous with wavng palms and grass skirts, native drums, Gauguin, coconuts, happy people and tribal dancing. Probably it was like that. These days people in Papeete, Tahiti’s capital, moan about all the changes. The tourist has arrived. Purists long for the ‘old days’ – not for the ‘real’ Tahiti 200 or 250 years ago, but for Tahiti in the 20s, when Papeete was tacky and ramshackle, covered in bougaivillaea and hibiscus, and the old Tiare Hotel was the only center of social activity. Today the rambling shanty of a water-front has disappeared behind the clean, concrete sweep of a two lane highway and there is an efficient, modern port.
It hasn’t all disappeared however; large sections of Papeete, much of the island of Tahiti itself and certainly many of the other islands (Moorea, Bora Bora, and Tahaa), offer the expected retreats, complete peace and quiet and palms. And Tahiti has its odd, exotic mixyure of peoples – the French Government officials, the Chinese shopkeepers, the European and American settlers and the Tahitians themselves.
