I am a self taught artist. Born and raised on a farm in central New York. Nature and wildlife has always been my passion in life. When I started painting in my mid 20's, I was living in the city and missed the country and wanted to capture the nature, wildlife and country scenes that I missed so much.
I found that I could escape the city by creating on canvas the scenes of the country side, nature and wildlife by imagining myself being in that particular place as the brush flows across the canvas. Through the years I have tried different techniques in my paintings and learning continually to where I am today.I have lived and traveled throughout the United States and parts of the world and now reside in a small community of upstate New York. I have participated in many art shows and my paintings have been shown and sold through various galleries and shows within the area.
So take a walk with me through the scenes of my paintings and I hope you enjoy.
Original paintings can be purchased at johannalerwick.com where I am also selling wolf portraits and Limited Edition prints of the wolves at The Wolf Mountain Nature Center.
