Erik Tiemens

Erik Tiemens is known internationally as a painter of fine landscapes with a classical influence. He studied traditional drawing and painting at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, graduating with distinction in 1990. Landscape painting has always captured his imagination and he enjoys studying old masters from the 16th – 19th centuries. This deep appreciation informs his palette and choice of subject matter. Tiemens’ current focus is toward creating romantic landscapes with dramatic use of light and shadow.
