MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST

Artwork by Grahame Booth

"Art for me is a way of connecting shapes to tell a story.

My intent with each piece of art is to capture and connect to the moment; connecting people in shared experiences, to this place and time. I’m partial to painting landscapes.

These beautiful scenes provide amazing contrasts of light, shadow, color, and gray all offering great illustrations of life’s own journey.

As elements of light and time display shapes and movement, these same elements often mirror our own storyline.‚ÄĚ
