Shawn Krueger, born 1973, is a contemporary landscape painter whose work sits comfortably in the American Tonalist and Arts & Crafts traditions. Shawn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Calvin College in 1998, studying under Chris Stoffel Overvoorde. Upon graduation, he traveled frequently to the UK and painted in nearly every corner of Great Britain. Over the years, Krueger has shown his landscape paintings with a variety of galleries in the Midwest and East Coast. Krueger’s work has garnered a number of awards over the years and his pieces are in dozens of private collections as well as in the permanent collections of the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Gilda’s Club of GR, Calvin College and the Bissell Corporation. The artist’s recent focus in his plein air work has been to find and emphasize a sense of mood and place within the landscape.
