The Artist Says:

"My goal as an artist is to capture the essence of life and spirit through the mediums of water, oil and ink. When choosing a subject, I go with what brings joy to my life. My creativity originates with a deep love and respect for the Earth and her many creatures great and small. Connected we are in a gossamer web of light and color. More than half of my paintings are completed plein air where I can enjoy the beauty of nature in all its forms."   -- Anna Jacke
