Loretta Yoder


Loretta graduated from college with a vocal major and art minor, followed by a Masters Degree in Theatre from Indiana University.

For 30+ years she had a successful career in the theatre and opera, including directing/producing, designing, and lighting, culminating in the purchase of a summer theatre in Saugatuck, Michigan.

Her love for the canvas and easel never diminished and since 2005 she has been a painter on Nantucket and member of the Artists' Association.

Recent study has been in workshops with Don Demers (Nantucket, Sarasota), Mary Erickson (Sarasota), Jonathan McPhillips (Rockport, MA), Hagop Keledjian (Putney, VT, Rockport), Joe McGurl (Nantucket), Gregg Kreutz (Nantucket, Chicago), Diane Rath (Chicago, Putney),and James Harrington, Nantucket.

Artist’s Statement:

"As an oil painter, I love the variety the medium offers. Every canvas is an adventure -- discovering harmony or discord in colors vivid or subtle, using texture, line, rhythm, edge, light and dark -- the choices are mind-boggling but never boring."
