Known for her evocative plein-air landscapes, Colorado artist Carloe Cooke relates “When I paint in remote areas, I feel a sense of unparalleled exhilaration and joy. It is my hope that sharing images f these pristine vistas will not only help my views experience a strong connection to nature, but more importantly, also encourage them to join in efforts to preserve these vanishing treasures.”
Following a successful career as an art director in the film industry, Cooke Turned her talent to the field of tine art in 1997. Following her own path of discovery and fired up by relentless enthusiasm and a dedication to research, she studied the work of European masters, the early California Impressionists and the Taos masters, internalizing their expertise as a means to find her own artistic voice.
Determined to capture the landscape in it’s truest sense and interpret the subtle tones nature presents, Cooke paints on location as much as possible, knowing that the observation is the key to that understanding. It is in these wide-open spaces that she is inspired to evoke the peace and amazing tranquility she feels in nature and bring that essence of outdoors into her paintings. Now that she has found her passion, she cannot imagine her life without painting.
Cooke is a participant in such prestigious annual exhibitions as the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Autry Center in Los Angeles: the Western Miniatures Show and Sale athe National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Situ Art Gallery, Laguna Beach
