Takeyce Walter is an artist and art instructor truly inspired by the landscape. This is ever apparent when standing before any of her paintings. Walter’s work in oil and pastel present the landscape of the Northeast in all its glory. There is a great sense of familiarity, calm, and stillness in each piece.
The paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by, and drawn to rivers, lakes, and the ocean. She is fortunate to live in close proximity to the beautiful Hudson, Mohawk, Au Sable Rivers and visits the beaches of Cape Cod during the summer.
Takeyce Walter is a painter whose return to painting in 2005 has been documented on her blog. She made a commitment to finishing at least one painting a week and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, Takeyce has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a prolific basis. In addition to exhibiting her paintings online, she also exhibits in local venues. Her art has found homes in many private collections across the country, and internationally.
