“A Great Lake is a massive wilderness that’s different every day, every season,” says artist Elizabeth G Fagan. “Sometimes Lake Michigan is simply a horizontal line—the point at which air meets water. The artist’s job is to identity lakefront drama and enhance its beauty.”
The Great Lakes region of North America enjoys four distinct seasons. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter bring changes to the natural world, not only in average temperature, but also in animals and plants, the Great Lakes, and the sky above.
“The climate here is more moderate than it is to the west and north,” says artist Elizabeth G Fagan. Tucked between lake bluffs on the west and Lake Michigan on the east, Lake Michigan’s Left Coast sees temperatures that are cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter. “It’s more of a Maritime climate,” says Fagan.
Elizabeth G Fagan is an artist, photographer, and writer. She calls her place in the world Lake Michigan’s Left Coast.
Fagan describes her art as “Eclectic 21st-Century.” Fagan is a member of the Cedarburg (WI) Artists Guild. Her work can be printed in a variety of media: prints, canvases, wood panels, calendars, greeting cards, and more.
