WHO: Kathleen Senzell, Northern California Oil Painter
Kathy’s work is clean and bold, with strong colors and contrasts of light. She paints beautiful animal & bird portraits, both wild and domesticated, stunning landscapes featuring iconic places, commissioned portraits, and a category I like to call “storytelling”. Her painting, Game for the Deed, (shown below) is a perfect example.
Her great love of all animals, support of animal rights all over the world, as well as her accomplishments as a horsewoman provide many of her painting subjects; she is also deeply interested in historical aspects of the American Southwest, reflected in works such as Chief Joseph (below).
A California native, Kathy studied art in Southern California schools and colleges before moving to Oregon where she immediately fell in love with the wilderness and the animals that inhabit it. As word spread about her ability to capture the “look” of the animals in her paintings, she began doing commissioned work.
