Schouten has been painting for more than 30 years. This master of detail not only wows viewers with his brushwork, but also takes them to realms beyond the everyday; to places infused with imagination, wit and a sensibility for the natural and spiritual worlds.

"Nature is my deepest source of inspiration, as are quantum physics and the stars of the night sky. Symbolism is the language I use to communicate," Schouten said.

With his well-honed skills for detail and design, Schouten is able to take the viewer to places imagined as only a magic-realist could. His journey as an artist has been inspired by Escher, Dali, Magritte, and the 19th century Symbolist artists, but even more so by the works of Carl G. Jung, Joseph Campbell and his own studies of Eastern traditions, primarily Buddhism.

"My paintings are carefully crafted to instill a sense of wonder and mystery, and designed to reveal the esthetic beauty and radiance of ordinary things."

Rob Schouten Gallery and Sculpture Garden, a premier showcase for Whidbey Island and Northwest artists, is located at Historic Greenbank Farm on scenic Whidbey Island amid rolling hills and forests offering breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic and Cascade mountains. Aside from Rob Schouten Gallery the Farm also houses Whidbey Pies Cafe, Greenbank Farm & Wine Shop, Greenbank Cheese & Specialties Shop, Artworks Gallery and Raven Rocks Gallery & Gifts.

Centrally located at the heart of Whidbey Island, just off Hwy. 525 and Wonn Road at the narrowest point on the island, you can’t miss the open fields and red barns. We are just 18 miles north of the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry, or 10 miles south of Coupeville, with ample free parking.

We look forward to seeing you!
