BIOGRAPHY

April Gornik (born 1953, Cleveland, Ohio) is an American artist who paints American landscapes.

'I am an artist that values, above all, the ability of art to move me emotionally and psychically. I make art that makes me question, that derives its power from being vulnerable to interpretation, that is intuitive, that is beautiful.'

-April Gornik
