Candice Tucker

Artist Statement: As I think of vacationing in Northern Michigan while our children were growing up it brings a smile to my face. This attachment to Northern Michigan is very special to me and it is only natural that this would be the main focus of my painting. The connection for those who settle in the north is a bond that is often unspoken. It is a special place for special people. I am grateful to be able to share its beauty.
