ANGELA SAXON paints the landscapes that surround her — for the past 25 years that has primarily been Leelanau County. Most often a plein air painter, her landscapes offer an expressive perspective on the views and vistas we all know and love. In the past years her work has expanded to include landscapes from time spent traveling in Italy. She holds a BFA in Painting from Indiana University, and has lived and worked in Leelanau County since 1987. www.angelasaxon.com

ANNE CORLETT is from the Saugatuck area and has studied at Oxbow in Saugatuck, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Royal Academy of Art in London. She holds a BA of Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin. She paints in oils, watercolors and pastel and prefers to work outdoors in order to connect to the landscape. “Paintings are a place to explore my relationship to life. When working, I take hold of the energy around me and focus it onto the canvas. This action celebrates existence.” www.annecorlett.com

LYNN UHLMANN's paintings are inspired by favorite locations in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. She paints plein air and in the studio using gouache or oil paint. Her work interprets the personalities and rhythmic movement of trees through various levels of abstraction and representation. Her education includes a BFA and MFA. www.lynnuhlmann.com

ROYCE DEANS has lived in northern Michigan for 23 years. Working in this environment has informed his paintings in a very special way. Painting “the county” is where he rediscovered a love of capturing the landscape in paint, from painting the shapes and contours in its skies and rolling hills. He grew up in Chicago and graduated from the American Academy of Art. He has spent much of the last 5 years working in different parts of the world working on large scale abstract expressionist projects. www.roycedeans.com
