Annemiek Haralson

about The artist


I find my inspiration in many things. It can be the way the light hits, a color that catches my eye, or a feeling I need to express. My main focus has been on watercolor, and I enjoy painting Plein Air. Being in the actual environment has helped me feel more connected to what I'm painting. More recently I picked up some oil paints, and something happened I did not think possible: I actually enjoy oil painting too.


I love the creative process. "Every artist was first an amateur" (Ralph Waldo Emerson) is my motto. There is never an end to learning. Every painting and drawing is a lesson and helping me grow, and I enjoy sharing this with others.


I was born in the Netherlands, and I have lived in Ithaca, NY since 1992. I fell in love with watercolor many years ago while taking an art class in the Netherlands. I've taken several workshops and classes throughout the years and have been painting off and on, while working as a registered nurse and raising three children. The nest is empty now, and this has given me more time to dedicate to painting and drawing. It has been a great road to be on!
