Timberline Artists’ Biographies
Doug Boomer was born and raised in Madera County, California. During his youth he grew up on a farm in the San Joaquin Valley, spending summer vacations camping in the Sierra’s.
When he was about twelve years old he was inspired by an uncle who was painting portraits and various figures. He was also inspired by the many artists he saw at art shows during the 1970s and 1980s, including his two brothers. He and his wife Barbara have lived in Eastern Madera County since 1964.
His art represents an artistic journey that has been on-going for more than twenty-five years with help and guidance from many wonderful artists. He started studying formally with other artists during the 1990s. He has studied under many professional painters including Donald “Putt” Putman, Carlene Kostiw, Gary Langdon, Jerome Grimmer, and many others.
In his representational paintings, primarily in watercolors and acrylics, he tries to express the subject he’s painting in such a way that the viewer has an emotional response. Whether the subject is a figure, a flower, an animal, or a landscape, he wants to capture the spirit of the subject with light, color, mood, or motion. He is trying to express something that is intriguing about the subject. He is seeking to communicate a story that tells of something greater than the subject itself.

Coarsegold artist Gretchen Lee depicts colorful and whimsical images on her home grown gourds. Flora and fauna of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains that surround her home are her inspiration.
She feels that each gourd has its own special spirit that guides her as to what it shall become. Gretchen graduated from Fresno State University with a degree in fine art. She taught in the local schools and has received many awards in local art exhibitions.
Join us as Gretchen leads us through her creative process.
For many years I worked in bronze, aluminum, stone, wood and ceramics. After attending CSU Fresno, I was able to expand into glass and eventually into installations.
Recently, I have explored photography and digital art and find it relaxing to work at a computer.
Laura was born and raised in the conservative, agricultural, and family-oriented area of the Central San Joaquin Valley. She received a Bachelor of Science in Food Administration from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo. Currently, she is retired and lives with her husband in the Wishon/North Fork area of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Laura’s first experiences with art were with a family of artists, both fine and domestic art. Her first love was, and remains, fabric. She has also practiced and studied watercolor. After an introduction to quilting from her daughter, she was hooked. There are only so many beds to cover with traditional quilts, so she quickly moved to wall quilts. As in fine art, she started by doing studies in fabric. Currently, her toolbox has plenty of techniques and ideas, many acquired by the “Oops” method or “Don’t ask me how I know.” As a child she interpreted her father’s instruction, “Don’ go anywhere,” to include the driveway on her new bike. She continues to push the boundaries with the phrase, ”What if…” She is now working with improvisational quilts.
I am a pastel artist who is inspired by nature. My paintings have won many awards and have been featured in art books and magazines. In the past few years of my thirty-year career I have been painting more abstractly, allowing the viewer more freedom to interpret what they see according to their own perspective and life experience. It is my hope that the viewer takes a pause from the everyday to reflect and enjoy the moment.
Jennifer Moss enjoyed a career as a professional photographer in the L.A. fashion industry for over a decade, and now enjoys pursuing photography as an art. Her works include images of architecture, landscape, portraiture, and flora…with a digital twist.
