Phyllis Bachand is an abstract mixed media painter who splits her time between Ponte Vedra Beach, FL and Maine. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Washington, DC and Toronto as well as Florida and Maine.  She studied sculpture and painting at the Corcoran School of Art and in 1991 received her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Over the years, Phyllis’s work has shifted from mixed media wall sculpture to more abstracted paintings. Drawing her inspiration from nature, Phyllis says that in her painting, she tries “to project a sense of beauty but with a force of energy and vitality. I like to expose the physical nature of the paint and its application. I want to give the viewer a reason to pause for reflection and time to study the work.”
