Landscape drawings primarily of the Midwest and Great Plains.

"I draw simple places and ordinary experiences of light and weather, expressing my own pleasure in the natural world and my wonder at the forces of time and natural science. Although the locations may be specific and derived from memory shaped by invention, these drawings are pages of an ordinary, universal geography."

Eugenie Torgerson received a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Printmaking from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. For twenty years she produced abstract, limited edition screenprints, complex in color organization and elegant in composition before turning to pastel as a medium.

She has received awards at major art festivals such as the Plaza Art Fair, Kansas City, MO; the Winter Park Art Festival, Winter Park, FL; The Bruce Museum Festival of Art, Greenwich, CT; and The Southwest Arts Festival, Albuquerque, NM. Her drawings were selected for the All-Michigan/All-Media exhibition in 1994 and for The Best of Pastel, published by Rockport Publishers in 1996.
