Ernee Way describes herself as a contemporary impressionist whose love of light, color and movement is at the heart of all her work.  A native of Savannah,Georgia, she feels completely in tune with the coastal beauty of New England. Marshes, dunes and inland rivers are frequently the subjects of her paintings. A painter with over 30 years of art experience, Ernee began art training at the age of nine in private instruction.  She studied art at the University of Georgia, the Montserrat School of Visual Art and enjoyed six  years of training with Copley Master Robert Scott Jackson. Ernee's paintings have been shown at  the American Impressionist National Exhibitions; the Society of Master Impressionists International Exhibitions; the National Oil and Acrylic Painters of America National Exhibits; the Regional Oil Painters of America Exhibit; the North Shore Arts Association Exhibits; theNewburyport Art Association Exhibits; the Salmagundi Club;  the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club;  the Hudson Valley Art Association;  in Boston through the Copley Society; and throughout the North Shore in one artist shows and in exhibitions winning many awards for her.  Her paintings are in many private collections throughout the United States and among the permanent collection of  the Beverly Public Library, Beverly, MA
“Nature is in a constant state of evolution.  Every moment is one of move-ment and becoming.  This intensifies my fascination for painting landscapes, often doing the same site with differing perspectives in its change of season,movement, light and color.  Impressionism was born out of this astute obser-vation of movement.  The short broken strokes with their myriad of colors in nature.  Although movement is a vital ingredient of my technique, my primary focus is always light.  Light is THE vehicle by which all images are conveyed or created.  How wonderful it is to be an observer and interpreter of the beauty nature has to offer.”
