Gwendolyn Waring has been in the western United States for more than 50 years, after traveling the world as a child.

Discovering a love for ecology shaped Gwen's sense of the world around her. Studying ecology gave her the confidence to paint—to begin to see through another medium.

Gwen paints landscapes with oil paints, after having explored other mediums, including paper-making, watercolors, pastels, and acrylics. She has found that oils work really well in the arid west, and of course they are quite lush.
