“My journey through life as an artist is continually evolving. Each painting is an expression of what I see and feel in front of me at that moment in time. My goal is to meld the visual subject matter with the mood, character and beauty I feel. Each scene or subject matter requires me to open myself to what is before me and make it part of me. Only after this is accomplished can the process flow through my experience, my heart and into my hands.
Gwen has been a successful artist since graduating from Indiana University in the early 80s. She has forged her own creative path with a unique approach to series paintings. Gwen has spent over twelve years traveling and creating over 185 “portrait” paintings of historic barns throughout Indiana and across the nation.
Recently, this collection of historic barn portrait paintings has been compiled into a beautifully produced book; HERITAGE BARNS OF INDIANA.
