Debra Kennedy

I have been an artist and a painter for most of my adult life while also pursuing a career in business and higher education.  I love spending time in Boston, on Cape Cod and in Southern Florida.  Many of the paintings you see are places that I am so familiar with – they are the places that I belong.  My work is continually evolving.  For many years, I worked solely in watercolor and loved the loose fluidity of the paint and the challenge of the experience.  For the past several years, I have been working in oils, enjoying the texture and the richness of color.

My art education has come through master artists and mentors. Creative pursuits have a way of stretching all aspects of thinking and seeing challenges.

Painting is play — it is good for the soul!
