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.
