Artist: Sarah Koten
The quality of light and its effects on the environment here in the Pacific Northwest is an endless source of fascination for me. The subtle changes it creates on the leaves, flowers and trees are remarkable and art-worthy. I am never happier than when I'm trying to capture, and recreate on the canvas, an interesting image. The challenge is captivating and all consuming.

Restoring the habitat of those that give back to the nourishment of all living things/and living things to come is crucially important for the well-being of this special place we ALL call home.
