About Me

Hi World!

I'm Gwenn Knapp

People have shaped the world with their creations throughout human history. I explore intersections between the natural and man-made by painting realistic images, whether portraits, still life, landscape, florals, or animals, that reflect our human inhabited world. More often, I find myself personifying the objects in my work.

Traveling near and far, I delight in both the exotic and mundane, gathering shells, acorns, and seeds, as well as man-made objects that catch my fancy. In my artwork, traces of humanity mingle with natural elements like flavors in a pot. With a dash of curiosity, and a pinch of humor, I see these familiar things in new ways adding beauty and a story. The results often reflect my mood, whether lyrical, whimsical, mysterious, or serene.

Having met many challenges in life, the importance of having fun through it all has become increasingly clear. Currently, my main challenge – and source of fun – is to express my pleasures through my art, simply starting with the desire to paint. I research my collection of photos and mix of objects until something catches my attention, then focus on my choice of subject matter to enhance those aspects that are pleasing to me.

As a former math major who loves to paint, I appreciate the relationships between organic and geometric forms, as well as other technical and compositional relationships such as size, color, balance, and texture. As I engage in the process of communicating that vision with my paint, I am particularly interested in the movement of light around and through objects. I love sharing the results with you, stirring a memory, feeling, or mood, and encouraging you to observe your world more closely – always remembering to have fun.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
