Pem Dunn has lived and painted in Colorado since 1984 and maintains residences in Evergreen and Tabernash. His paintings are a clear reflection of his love of the out-of-doors. Hiking the backcountry trails of the Rocky Mountains provides much of his inspiration. Viewing Pem’s work, one sees many familiar vistas of these areas in his oils. Pem is inspired by the constant changes in light and weather. This inspiration is evident in the light and subtle nuances of color that bring a great deal of richness to his work.
Pem has studied with some of this country’s finest artists including Joseph Dawley, Natalie Becker, Karen Vance and Scott Christensen.
Pem regularly teaches oil painting at the Evergreen Art Center.
