Wanda Aikens

Holland, MI, United States

I can only believe that my creative abilities were a gift. Time does not exist as I lose myself in creating the images. People ask me, "did you paint that"? I often say " I didn't paint that, it comes from some creative source that I don't even know". I do study art and materials used to create art. I am a Graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and have founded art groups. You can find me on Tuesdays teaching at Evergreen Commons in Holland, MI. I do studio and also Plein Air Paintings with a group called the "Plain Air Artists of West Michigan". We paint at Michigan Land Conservancy's not only to preserve the land but to preserve its views as art. My paintings reflect a message of place and time and are embellished in an impressionistic style. I have shown oils, watercolors and acrylic murals since 1991 through commissions and shows. Home studio is at 555 Cherry Lane, Holland, MI. I am also a member of The Holland Friends of Art.
