About Don Van Amerongen

I am a artist who loves nature. I walk in the redwoods and along the pacific coast almost daily. I like to create and explore my world with my unique perspective. Sometimes I imagine images and sometimes I shoot straight photography and sometimes I paint in oils. Mostly I don't care about the art world as it is. (I do love art) and I find that very freeing. Still, one needs to sell to survive and here I am. I earned a BFA at The San Francisco Art Institute in Painting and studied with various photographers, including Ansel Adams.
