Faye Vander Veer says she saw this couple seated at an outdoor cafe, their dog sleeping peacefully on the warm, sunlit terrace. "One could wonder if one of the people had something on their mind that they wanted to bring up, but thought perhaps they should just let sleeping dogs lie," she jokes.

Artist Faye Vander Veer seeks out moments with engaging narratives and captures them with an impressionist style. She describes herself as an observer of people living their day-to-day lives. Her goal is to offer viewers a look into her sensory memory while also prompting the beginning of a story. Faye always keeps her camera by her side, ready to capture reference material. "For me, each painting is an opportunity to explore my emotional reactions to the color and light I observe," says Faye. She enjoys being in her glass-walled studio surrounded by nature to inspire her creative process. When she is not putting paint on canvas, Faye can be found in nature, journaling or writing poetry. Her artwork has been showcased in both American Art Collector and Art of the West magazines.
