ORIGINAL OILS INSPIRED BY JAPANESE TANKAS
Quata Cody resides in Seattle, WA living the life of an artisan. Besides her love for painting and acting, she also restores and decorates the furnishings in her home. She raises chickens and makes her own wine.
“My Grandmother gave me her amazing wooden box of oil paints when I was 10. Shortly thereafter an uncle gave me an oil painting lesson. I was hooked. I did two ocean scene paintings on canvas and used up all the paint within 3 months painting on paper, cardboard and whatever I could find.”
Quata’s paintings depict the vast array of experiences in life from an ethereal, dreamy Hawaiian Scene to the raw, vulnerable emotions that we feel when processing harsh realities. Stills show clips of daily life. She works in many mediums, but her passion is oils. Some of her latest work can be seen on Hawaii Five O.
