Chris Loren

Chris Loren

“Viewing her work brings every sense to life, creating an expectation of the kiss of a mountain breeze, the scent of mesquite and sage in an oncoming storm, the taste of salt water on the tongue, or the visual explosion of color in the setting sun’s vast sky.”

Loren is best known for her vibrant landscapes that so accurately capture glowing light and shadow. Her paintings burst with abundant colors and powerful thick textures. Painting in the historic Plain Air style, she accurately creates what she sees and feels in her creative trips to the open air. A native of Portland, Oregon, she attended art classes at the local college and tried several different art forms. After moving to Arizona in 1998, Loren attended classes and workshops at the Scottsdale Artist’s School, then began to hike and paint in the desert that surrounds her home.
