Ahni Kruger is a painter and printmaker whose images form a provocative blend of conceptual and perceptual approaches. Her practice of addressing formal visual challenges on location in the landscape informs her studio work.. Much of her imagery derives from floral forms, painted from life in oil, then explored and altered using other media.
Jean Forbes is a retired high school art teacher who has been living in Manset for six years. Living on MDI has given her a variety of favorite subjects to work from, including landscapes, seascapes, architecture, gardens and harbor activities. Recently Forbes has enjoyed experimenting in oil, acrylic and gouache, continuing to incorporate the mood of the day into her work.
Julie prefers the inspiration of painting "en Plein aire" whenever possible. She is a colorist, energized to paint what she sees, in a realistic, but impressionistic style.
"My deep connection with the natural world, in the past, and through my art, has led to my immersion in landscape painting. "
