Billie J. Colson

Billie J. Colson was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She met and married her husband Ron in Houston in the early 80's. They then moved to DeSoto, a suburb of Dallas and started a family. There Billie became involved with the DeSoto Art League and served as president for the organization for the 1994, 1995 and 1996 sessions. She and her family relocated to Loveland Colorado in the summer of 1998.

Billie has been painting and drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. She has always had a passion for drawing animals. For most of her younger years she drew horses, but as time progressed she starting doing many other subjects.

Billie also studied with some outstanding portrait artists in the Dallas area; artists James R. Spurlock and Greg Conlin both became very influential to her. Both Conlin and Spurlock introduced Billie to a new medium, pastels, which is now her medium of choice, she also paints in oils.

Since moving to Colorado Billie has entered and placed in several national level art shows. She continued her art studies with Colorado artists Patti Andre, Jeannie McKenzie, and Jan Myers.

Billie coordinated and started Downtown Loveland's second Friday event "A Night on the Town". The event celebrated its fifth anniversary this May. In October 2006 Billie opened Independence Gallery in downtown Loveland Colorado and invited a dozen other area artists to join her in this venue.

In 2009 Billie organized the first annual Loveland Art Studio Tour and Sale. Over 30 artists participated and it was well received by the public.


Now that her two sons are on their own Billie plans to continue exploring the world of art. Her choice of subject matter is always changing for she says there are so many wonderful and beautiful things to paint.
