Vernon Nye (1915-2013) was born in NY and a member of the American Watercolor Society and Society of Western Artists. Vernon Nye was raised in New York State and studied art with Eliot O'Hara, Roy Mason, Ted Kautzky and Harry Anderson. After a successful career working as a book illustrator for the Review and Herald Publishing Association in Washington, D.C., he moved to Northern California. He became chairman of the art department at Pacific Union College and began teaching watercolor classes on the Mendocino Coast. He has primarily worked with transparent watercolors and occasionally added opaque colors. In many works, he feels the need for the image to tell a story, so figures are often included. Fisherman, campers, farmers or beach walkers often become subjects included in his watercolor landscapes. In more recent years, he has taught art on college campuses in Riverside, California and College Place, Washington. As an instructor for watercolor workshops, he has traveled to Japan, Europe and Hawaii. His watercolors have been exhibited on the West Coast in Society of Western Artists exhibitions, on the East Coast in American Watercolor Society annual exhibitions and in galleries in Northern and Southern California.
