I have always been captivated by animal and plant life and the ecosystems they inhabit. The process of planning an artwork and manipulating paint through playful applications like brushing, scraping, and splashing is an empowering act that allows me to both explore and express the human connection to the natural world.
Landon received his B.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he focused on color theory and layering techniques. As a painter, he was drawn to the surfaces that could be created through an understanding of these ideas. After college, he ran professionally for two years and then made the decision to pursue a career in art full-time. He is a Pennsylvania certified art educator and is working towards a Master's degree in Art Education at Kutztown University.
Landon grew up in rural Michigan where he spent his days outside exploring the woods and nearby river. His experiences as a child engendered a deep appreciation for the natural world that inspires his paintings to this day. Landon's expressive and painterly application of layers and brilliant use of color allows him to share those same feelings of wonder and magic with others.
