Ritva Porter’s moody, intense landscapes capture the glory and beauty of the natural world. Ritva’s breathtaking colors and textures depict the subtle play of light and shade found in nature. These soft, dream-like images evoke the fleeting, transient quality of time, space, and emotion. Born in Finland, Ritva grew up in Australia and now lives and paints in Montana.

“This beautiful place called Montana I now call home, and it is here that I find inspiration for my work beyond measure – abundant nature, dramatic skies, grand vistas and sparkling waters. Since childhood I have been drawn to nature’s abundance. I often begin a painting with a particular scene in mind but quickly the work takes on a life of its own. It’s interesting to step back and see what has emerged. The process is very much one of contemplation as well as action and doing.” – Ritva Porter
