Trish Poupard
Watercolor Artist


A former clothing designer, Trish has no formal art education.  She honed her watercolor skills by taking classes at a local recreation center.  It wasn’t until she moved from Southern California to NorthTexas that she decided to pursue her watercolor full time.  Through teaching watercolor technique classes locally and serving on the board of the Southwestern Watercolor Society In Dallas, Trish finds a busy balance  creating art with giving back to the art community.
