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
I am fascinated by the power of art, and how it can dramatically change the way we see our environment. That’s the magic behind the paintbrush: art offers us a chance to see our world differently, from an artist’s point of view.
Creating art empowers me to effectively convey the beauty and magnificence of everyday life. My goal is to capture the moments in my life, using art as a way to see the world with a more colourful viewpoint. The emotional connection to my daily experiences, exploring the beauty of nature through landscape and floral painting, as well as animal portraiture has become the sole driver behind everything I create.
