Weiser, who grew up in Wisconsin, began painting as a
child and went on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts
and K-12 teaching certificate from the University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She taught in the Art and Design
Department at the University of Wisconsin-Stout for two
years and for the past 25 years has conducted classes
and workshops in Wisconsin, Arizona and New Mexico.
For her joyfully close-up cactus
compositions, painted in either oils or acrylics, Weiser
works primarily from her own photos, cropping, replacing,
repositioning or enlarging forms to expertly compose
her dynamic light-filled canvases. It is her unique and
complex compositions that not only capture her artistic
devotion and expertise but capture the accolades of clients
and critics alike; Weiser has won many awards including
those from American Artist and The Artist's magazines.
It is bold colors, a remarkable
attention to detail and singular sense of design that
makes Weiser's paintings stand apart. And her artwork
continues to evolve as her curiosity compels her to keep
experimenting with different color palettes, subjects
"In my hobby stage of
painting, the question was ‘what should I paint?'" Weiser
"When I discovered that an artist paints light as
it falls over form, the question became ‘how can
I ever, in my lifetime, paint all that exists, all that
I now see?' Yes, it's still fun, but so much more."
Weiser is a juried member of
the Arizona Artists Guild, Sonoran Arts League and the
Scottsdale [AZ] Artists League.
