About the Artist 

Brandy Lynn Magill is an acrylic and oil painter. She grew up in Alaska, but after many visits to the state decided to relocate to Florida. Attending Academy of Art University is where she fine tuned her artistic talents. She is a resident of Punta Gorda. Often painting abstract works that are reflective of mood and spirituality.

Artist's Statement

Being an artist is much more than picking up a brush and making a stroke. I enjoy all things natural and positive in the world. Finding art that is moving, sets a mood, and creates an energy is important to me. Through art I am able to connect with other with out words and transfer feelings through colors.
