Artist
Tatyana Fogarty Fair Oaks, California

Artist Tatyana Fogarty displays the intricacies of nature with her impressionist landscapes of Central California's coast. Her interest in painting nature was born out of her admiration for the 19th-century Russian artist Ivan Aivazovsky's dramatic marine scenes. As a plein air artist, Tatyana finds an inspirational location, uses all of her senses to interpret a scene, and creates a study with oil on canvas. "I do not generally touch-up my plein air pieces, preferring to preserve the immediacy and honesty of painting on location." Fogarty enjoys listening to everything from Tchaikovsky to Creedence Clearwater Revival during her creative process. When she is not painting, you can find her at operas and ballets, traveling the world, or listening to audiobooks in her woodland studio. Tatyana's creations have been showcased at galleries in California, New York, and The Southwest Art Magazine. Fogarty is a Signature member of The American Impressionist Society.

    Artist Statement

    I am inspired by the way light shapes the landscape, and I strive to capture it on canvas. I often paint en plein air (on location), which allows me to use all my senses to interpret a scene in front of me with a sense of immediacy and honesty. I choose to paint in oils, because I love their robust quality of bright, luminous colors, which are easily blendable and capable of retaining texture and showing brushstrokes. My favorite starting point for landscape painting is the golden light of late afternoon, known as the “magic hour,” which creates the most intriguing effects by merging captivating shadow patterns and warm, luminous color of the setting sun. Painting is visual music for me. Each of my brushstrokes is infused with its own kind of melody. My hope is that viewers will hear the sounds and rhythms of that music as they look at my work, and it will generate the same emotions that I had when painting the piece.
