VINITA PAPPASBEACH COMBER - ARTIST - ART INSTRUCTOR
Welcome to my website – so nice to have you here!
My favorite part of being an artist is having the opportunity to explore new ideas and new methods of expression. I see each artwork as a journey of discovery. Although I’m best known for my paintings in watercolor, I also work in gouache, acrylic, and mixed media.
I’m honored and humbled to be an art instructor. There is nothing quite like the feeling of helping someone express their own creativity. I teach exactly how I would want to be taught – in a way that encourages folks to create with more freedom, boldness, and simplicity.
Bringing my art life full circle, I am the gallery coordinator of Gallery 7, an art display space within Seven Feathers Casino Resort. The gallery features artwork from artists in the Pacific Northwest. I’m entering my 5th year at Gallery 7 and I continue to enjoy hanging and displaying art!

Vinita’s painting tutorials are insightful and helpful. It’s just like being in her studio watching her paint.
