Hope Myers


Hope Myers is an award-winning artist who paints watercolors and makes one-of-a-kind jewelry in her "An Artist's Garden" studio in Los Osos, California. She began to work with art forms as a child and continued her interests through a B.A. degree in Wisconsin with a minor in Art History.

In California, Hope has extended her fine arts studies through academic classes at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo, and professional workshops with Robert Reynolds, Helmuth Wegner, Kolan Peterson, Tom Lynch, and others.

Hope creates full detailed watercolor paintings, utilizing many washes of paint to emanate bold, rich color. Hope is noted for her imaginative and colorful depictions of animals, from her quail series, to the floral and local Central Coast, scenes.

Her primary medium is transparent watercolor. Using vibrant colors in sometimes unusual combinations; in clean and at times simple settings, she emphasizes her love for the beauty of living things and outdoor scenes that can brighten our lives.
