Not sure about her newer stuff, I have one of her first series called The Salmon. I also have a few others. Like my dad said (he knows many of the natives responsible for the revival of the West Coast Native Art form...there is a story there!) Not bad for a white girl...

Hope that last statement isn't ot politcally incorrect

I'm still stuck on wildlife art. There was an artist I was particularly fond of. Donald Grant. He laid the paint on in a ”painterly” style yet rendered his subjects accurately and he was a master of light and shadow.

His work was a breath of fresh air in the time where artists where trying to paint photorealism. I think Grant came a bit late to the game and never obtained the popularity of his contemporaries. The bandwagon was already hopelessly overloaded with mediocrity and copycat artists. Sadly, he past away a few years ago. No website I know of.

I also enjoyed the pre 80's works of Coheleach and enjoyed some art from Simon Combes. BTW, Simon passed away in December. :(

Elsa,

Thank you for that wonderful site of John Ebner.

I love his paintings. It brought back so many memories and now I want to purchase some to put in my shop for memories more than to sell.

I spent two wonderful years on Whidbey Island, so the one of Deception Pass was beautiful and magical, and spending a sunday afternoon at Pikeplace markets stocking up on fresh vegies and fish. Infact my grandma had that print and I've always wanted it.

Thanks everyone for sharing your favorite artist.

Marion
