About the Artist:

Intrigued by the effect of light on objects and the interesting shadows it creates, my challenge and goal is to capture it in each painting.  Finding much of my inspiration from nature, architecture, and coastal scenes, I long to invite the viewer into each scene, inspiring them to be aware of the magnificent beauty created for our pleasure.








Artist Statement:

Kathleen Denis, a native South Floridian, earned a BFA Degree from the University of Miami.  Since 1994 Kathleen has painted professionally, employing both watercolors and oils.
