Hanging Garden VII 48 x 48 Acrylic on Canvas
Florida artist Kristin Herzog enjoys doing both realistic and abstract work. She grew up on the coast of Massachusetts, south of Boston, and began painting before she started school. Unfortunately her initial choice of support was the porch floor, causing her effort to be met with negative reviews and consequently this early work has been lost. During her career as a publication designer Herzog lived in New York City, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, and Washington, D.C. She now lives in Naples FL and paints primarily on canvas in acrylics since her porch floor is neither portable during hurricane evacuations, nor suitable for painting.
Her work can be seen by appointment. Please use the contact form below.
