DEVIN MICHAEL ROBERTS (b. 1984) is originally from the foothills of the Cascades. He is an American contemporary realist working primarily in oil and watercolor. His work has been featured in publications such as American Art Collector, Southwest Art and Plein Air Magazine.
Devin is drawn to the emotive power of the natural world. He favors low light scenes—the sun on its final descent below the horizon, a slice of moon at midnight—for the sense of mystery and depth of feeling such fleeting moments evoke. His time painting on location outdoors is usually just the starting point. The finished work evolves as a collage of location and memory, veils of color suggesting the hidden spiritual aspects in nature.
