BJ White Biography

B. J. White is a recognized contemporary artist whose paintings, collages, and sculptures have been extensively shown in solo, jurored, and invitational exhibitions across the United States.  Her works are held in private and corporate collections all over the world. 

Frequently published, B.J.'s work has been reproduced in several books including: Collage Techniques: A Guide for Artists and Illustrators, Expressive Drawings, A Schematic Approach, and The Complete Guide to Watercolor.  Her work has also appeared in several periodicals including The New York Art Review.  She was the cover artist for Art Gallery.  Her biography has been included in Who's Who in American Art.

B.J.'s work is based on her emotional response to written and/or spoken language as it relates to social, political or environmental issues.  The complexity of these issues is translated by the multiple layering of color, images, and textures.  The repetitive shapes or marks, which are so prevalent in her work, represent the staccato rhythm of life and the multiplicity and synchronicity of experiences. 

A native Oklahoman, B. J. earned her M.F.A. at the University of Oklahoma.  She lives with her family and animals near White Prairie Farm north of Edmond, Oklahoma and creates in a studio adjacent to the farm.
