Uyen-thi (T) Nguyen is an Oregon-based artist working primarily in oils. Born in Vietnam, T’s family immigrated to the US when
she was two months old. She studied at Moorpark College, Art Center of Design in Pasadena and Academy of Art in San Francisco,
receiving awards and scholarships. Learning each step of the way, T worked in many different industries and later started a
successful business in historic downtown Cottage Grove. After moving to Oregon in 2005, she developed a love for community and
volunteered on non-profit boards, arts organizations and taught arts afterschool programs.
A few years ago, T decided to prioritize painting. This year, her art has been displayed in Portland at the Radius Annex Gallery
and Splendorporium, in Eugene at New Zone Gallery and at the Axe & Fidde in Cottage Grove. Her painting "At the End" won Juror's
Choice Award by Jane Brumfield and was exhibited at The Arts Center in Corvallis this summer.
Her most recent project centers around her beloved town, “A Portrait of Cottage Grove,” and was awarded the Artist Grant from
Lane Arts Council. This body of work, which will include 60-85 portrait paintings and a few urban landscapes, will be published in
an art book and exhibited at local museums, libraries and public venues in late Spring 2021. Visit
