Further studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Dijon, France and an appointment to the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam led to four years of landscape and plein air paintings in the countryside of southern Portugal. Her paintings and drawings are in the collection of the Polk Museum in Lakeland, Florida and the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. Ms. Dameron has over fifty commisions to date from society portraiture to allegorical triptychs and murals as well as numerous private collectors. Ms. Dameron taught anatomy and figure drawing at the Morean Arts Center from 1992-2004. She teaches advanced painting at the Suntan Art Center and works with private students.
“Dameron is such a fine painter, the trees are gauzy leaves against startling white could-bursts, the swish of a dog’s tail, the overall details that remind one of a 17 century baroque paintings, all contribute to a sense of drama. Their muscular handling is very 20th century.she describes her subject matter as allegorical and I agree…use of oil paint creates a rich,luminous surface…Enjoy.”
