Artist Jo Galang expresses a quiet nostalgia in her airy interpretations of the landscapes and waterways of the Pacific Northwest. Her soft oil paintings capture the meditative sounds of rivers and waterfalls flowing past her easel. During the summer, she spends as much time as possible outside creating plein air sketches and studying the light on the landscape. As a young art student in the Philippines, Jo was privileged to study with the renowned painter Danilo Dalena, who she says encouraged her to be the artist she is today. "I believe my art looks simple enough that people have no idea how much time I have spent working on it," she says. When she is not painting, Jo and her husband enjoy taking road trips, playing cards and finding creative ways to spend time with their granddaughter.

About The Artist
My art is a reflection of how I feel about the world around me. I want my viewers to see the world from a different angle, from an artist's point of view.
Creativity and inspiration come from many things. It could be how sunlight sits on tree branches or how the water glistens in the early morning sun. It could also be as simple as viewing a stunning artwork from another artist that I admire. Many times it comes from the very interesting lines and shapes of things around me and how they form a composition I could not resist. There is an endless source of inspiration from the very simple things in life.
