Douglas R. Giebel

My own inclination as an artist was to work representationally, based upon direct observation of the model, whether it be a landscape, human figure, or a combination of those subjects. As a Christian, my understanding of the world as God's good creation has directed my work as a figurative artist. I admire the beauty that God has placed in nature to reflect his glory. I am stimulated by the inexhaustible splendor creation holds, reflecting the wisdom of its Creator. My work is nurtured by the subtlety and structure of what God has made. I am eager that the fruit of my artistic labor joins in the universal praise that all creation, as recorded in Psalm 148, sings to its Maker.

BIO

I was born and raised in Michigan, a state surrounded by water. As I child our family had picnics on Belle Isle in the Detroit River. Our grandparents also had a cottage on Lake Huron, where we learned of the beauty, and grandeur that a large body of water brings to our experience of nature. Since those early days, I have lived in New York City, Boston�s north shore, St. Paul, Minnesota, and now Rochester, New York, all places in which water has had a great impact on my sensibility as a perceptual artist. Each of these different, yet water-related landscapes have guided my development as an artist over the years.
