Takeyce Walter is an award winning contemporary American painter (born 1980, Jamaica), and art instructor living and working in beautiful upstate New York. Driven to create from an early age, Walter has been producing art for as long as she can remember. Currently, her focus has been on the natural landscape of the Northeast. Walter’s paintings present that landscape in all its glory – flowing rivers, majestic skies, and picturesque lakes. There is a great sense of familiarity, tranquility, and reverence in each piece.
The paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by, and drawn to bodies of water; rivers, lakes, marshes, streams and the ocean. She is fortunate to live near the scenic Hudson, Mohawk, Au Sable Rivers, and visits the beaches of Cape Cod during the summer.
Inspired by the Daily Painters of the mid-2000s, Walter made a commitment to finishing at least one painting a week in 2005, and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, she has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a prolific basis. In addition to exhibiting her paintings online, she also exhibits in regional galleries in the Northeast.
