Audrey Tulimiero Welch, MFA
Audrey Tulimiero Welch is an internationally exhibited painter who grew up in Livingston, New Jersey and currently resides in Tacoma, Washington. She earned her BFA in 1980 from the University of Delaware and her MFA (Scholarship Award) in 2010 from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. For the past fifteen years Welch has lived and work in Indonesia, Thailand, and Australia which led the artist to focus on the subjects of line, mapping and place. Welch’s abstract acrylic paintings can be read as metamorphic ‘maps’ that contain in their vibrant layers embedded stories and the lived relationships of daily life.
Welch’s paintings are included in numerous public and private collections around the globe, including GOOGLE, Ronald McDonald House, Perth, Western Australia, Hyatt Regency, Oman, Four Seasons Hotel, MGM, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Bangkok, Indonesia, Germany, Singapore and Australia. Museum exhibitions include Frauen Museum, Bonn, Germany; Bade Museum, Berkeley, California; Coos Bay Art Museum, Oregon; and Museo Italo Americano, San Francisco. She was awarded a 2011 artist residency in Western Australia, and nominated for the 2010 Daedalus Foundation Fellowship in painting. Publications include Fine Art Magazine, Thailand Art and Design Guide, Architectural Digest, New American Paintings and the San Francisco Chronicle.
