Kim Luczkowski Artist Profile

Kim Luczkowski is a watercolor artist who has been painting for about two years.  She is a Huron Ohio native which is on the southern shore of Lake Erie.  Huron has several beautiful beaches and she has painted images of three of them in the past year.  She uses Matboard & More to mat the prints that she makes from her paintings.

Below she describes in detail the three photo’s she submitted in the 2015 Photo Contest.

My painting of Huron Lake Front Park features this public park on the southern shore of Lake Erie.  In the distance you can faintly see Cedar Point which is a huge amusement park in Sandusky Ohio.

My painting of Nickel Plate Beach shows two piers which straddle the Huron River just west of this public beach.  In the distance is the Huron Lighthouse which sits at the end of the mile long pier.

This painting of Chaska Beach captures a very windy, rainy day in June of 2015.  These Adirondack chairs represent the usual festive atmosphere on this private beach that were idled on that day.

I discovered my ability to paint watercolors just over two years ago and decided to feature the beaches from my home town of Huron Ohio.

Matboard and More is profiling artists and groups that use our products as part of the 2015 Photo Contest.
