Gwen Jordan, Coastal Artist
Gwen moved from Rougemont, N.C., onto Emerald Isle, N.C. in 2007. From her home overlooking the scenic Atlantic Ocean, nestled in and along the coastline of North Carolina, she is truly inspired by nature's grandeur. Canvas, acrylics, watercolors, vision and true talent are refined into a masterpiece of Artistry. A sense of design and rich colors enhance Gwen's one of a kind paintings. Each painting is truly a work of art. Using the hand of a master, she makes use of an array of colors to create art. Gwen's vision is portrayed as she handcrafts the elements of her paintings. She is a member of the Morehead City Arts Council and has participated in many of their art shows and also Adopt the Artist.
