Loren Chantland is a self-taught artist who has been painting and drawing for over 40 years. He believes experiencing art in person is an education in itself, and one of the best ways to grow not only as an artist, but as a human being.
Loren grew up in rural Iowa and loved to watch the big sky rolling over the land. Magnificent big skies and awe-inspiring clouds are his favorite subjects, something that he has loved to paint all his life.
After traveling and exploring the world, Loran was able to move back to his beloved Iowa and those glorious big skies. — He now gets to paint what he likes from his quiet family farm, often taking commissions from various people and places around the world.
