Figurative Expressions of the Heart
Mary Van Kampen’s colorful contemporary landscape paintings offer a glimpse into the artist’s own interior landscape – a tableau vivant of her inner strength and optimistic outlook that helped her overcome a serious illness.
Van Kampen’s paintings contain personal symbols used to document her experiences and thoughts. She uses metaphors of the land, commonplace objects and deeply textured layers to process her feelings and express herself.
"I invite you to visit my portfolio to view examples of my contemporary landscape paintings, encaustic paintings, still life studies, my favorite birds and other moments I try to capture from my life."
Mary also invites you to visit her journal and welcomes comments and questions.
