For the past thirty years Christin Coy’s art work has reflected her appreciation for nature through her landscape and animal paintings in the style of classical realism, both in plein air and in her larger studio works. Christin’s oil paintings of Marin’s oak covered golden hills, coastal regions, and West Marin farm animals reflect her strong connection with the land, and bring to life the unique mood and beauty of each setting. She is especially attracted to the warm colors and light that appear in the late afternoon. An avid hiker, she always finds new subject matter for her paintings while exploring the muriad of local trails.“I love my profession and couldn’t ask for a more inspirational place to live and paint than here in Marin County.”

Christin paints daily in her San Anselmo studio where she also welcomes visitors by appointment. She has participated in “Ranches and Rolling Hills” for the past 17 years, raising funds for the protection of farmland for Marin Agricultural Land Trust. Christin is a founding member of BayWood Artists who for the past 21 years have helped raise funds for the protection and conservation of Bay Area land and water. She is represented by Holton Studio Gallery in Berkeley, and a collection of her Marin landscape paintings are available at the Sand Dollar in Stinson Beach. Her paintings are in collections throughout the United States. Christin has a degree in Fine Art from U.C. Berkeley and she is an artist member of the California Art Club.
