denise-marie-lamarMedium: Oils on canvas.

“Magic Realism” is, perhaps, the term that better captures the feeling.

The interpretive quality of my work is impressionistic in approach; either alla prima or layered by glazing and scumbling.

Majored in oil painting at Penn State University while minoring in music.

Art is a visionary expression of ones feelings and thoughts. My goal is to capture the beauty of light, color and form on canvas and share this exhiliration with others.

Art Background:
Studied with Spanish master portrait artist, Sebastian Capella in La Jolla, CA. Studied with landscape artist, Ken Auster in Laguna Beach, CA.

Upper Darby, PA USA

Migration to Maui:
Moved to Maui from San Diego, California area after being invited by friends to relocate.
