Ms. Groot grew up in Southern California with the sun and light illuminating the landscape. Now living and working in East Hampton, she finds the light on the East End equally special and energizing.

“This energy has charged and influenced the work plus my ongoing desire to reinvent the immediacy of the ever changing moments in nature,” says Ms. Groot. “The paintings contain active and bold brushwork to pursue the energy felt in our natural world. A strong, personal and inventive layered use of color gives these paintings a fresh, lush and sometimes surprising view into the world around us. The use of linear elements further vitalize the brushwork.”
