Biography


 

 
“Christin Coy's works are soft and gentle views of California at its most spiritual moments.  She treats the landscape with genuine tenderness, seeking always the most poetic times of the day.  Her light is subdued but heartfelt, and her colors form a deep harmony that precisely capture the soul of the land.  The result is a splendid amalgam of light, tone and poetry.”
