Annemiek Haralson –Recent Works

“I grew up in the Netherlands, and have lived in the Ithaca area since 1992. When faced with the choice of a career path the toss-up was between nursing and art school. Nursing won out, but I always kept drawing and painting. I paint mostly landscapes, and find my inspiration in the beauty around us. I make sketches and paint outside (plein air) whenever I can. Being in the actual environment helps to make me feel more connected to what I am painting. Often these outdoor paintings will later lead to larger studio pieces. I try to convey the feeling I had when I was originally drawn to a scene, and hope to transfer my love for nature into my paintings.”
