I am an oil painter and paint mostly South Dakota landscapes. I enjoy painting plein air and in my studio. I do many small studies and use my favorite studies as the basis for larger paintings. I paint vey thickly-usually with a palette knife. I Ama member and sell my paintings at Eastbank Gallery at the 8th and Railroad Center in Sioux Falls. I also sell paintings online on Ebay, Etsy, and Daily Paintworks, as well as on my website nan-venhuizen.format.com. I am presently a member of the South Dakota Arts Council.
