Devin Michael Roberts (B. 1984) is an American Tonalist and Emotionalist artist specializing in paintings of the landscape done in the studio and outdoors "en plein air". Over the last few years Devin has managed to build a steady following of collectors, national representation, press and awards. " Painting out in the landscape is where I find the most joy, wonder and peace in my life. The whole experience, from planning the trip, hiking out, taking reference videos and sketching to the actual process of painting. It creates a much more meaningful relationship with the world around me... When I create an oil painting I'm basically doing my best to translate the feelings and senses that I feel and hopefully take the viewer on a journey that results in a clearer vision of our beautiful planet. If I can help the viewer escape for a few moments from the monotony of their life, if I can take them out of their office or home and put them on the top of a mountain or beside the ocean, I have fulfilled my purpose. " - Devin Michael Roberts
