Esther Pearl Watson is a super talented busy lady, dividing her time between, teaching, making art, illustrations, and spending time with her family. Her work is autobiographical and full of fun with her signature naive
style but true painting talent.
She grew up with a Father who is obsessed about the idea he could build a working flying saucer and sell it to NASA or Ross Perot. Esther's childhood memories revolve around her Father's goal.
Esther is a journal keeper and most of her paintings come from the past or her present day to day thoughts and dreams.
In additional to her paintings and drawings, Esther is the author of three comic books, "Unlovable" printed by Fantagraphics, which is all about the life of Tammy.
This past year, Esther was given the opportunity by the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth to design and paint a huge 10x13' painting was is installed in their atrium through July 2016.
We are looking forward to Fall 2017 where we open a one person show
with Esther here at the gallery. This will be her first one person exhibit here since 2012.
