"Orange County has evolved, and I have grown with it. My artwork has morphed along with the shifting landscape, absorbing the color," stated Swan.

Swan is a fifth generation Californian who has been painting the world around her since childhood.  Her award-winning artwork has been exhibited at shows and galleries throughout Southern California and has become a cherished part of international collections.
