Christin Coy - Archive

Marin County painter Christin Coy is well-known and a favorite in the Northern California plein air scene. Christin’s oil paintings of the Marin County hills, coastal regions, and Sonoma County vineyards, reflect her strong connection with the land, responding to the unique mood and beauty of each setting. It has been said that Christin’s work evokes the deep, rich sounds of the cello. In the words of Jean Stern of the Irvine Museum, “Christin Coy’s works are soft and gentle views of California at its most spiritual moments. She treats the landscape with genuine tenderness, seeking always the most poetic times of day. Her light is subdued but heartfelt, and her colors form a deep harmony that precisely captures the soul of the land. The result is a splendid amalgam of light, tone and poetry.”
