Family Outing by Kathleen Dunphy

Featured Artist Kathleen Dunphy masterfully captures the beauty of wildlife art. As an artist, Dunphy's goal is to paint with passion that radiates her reverence for the natural world. Kathleen lives in the pristine Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. An avid outdoors person and hiker, she relishes painting several times a month "en plein air" with her sidekick and canine companion, Ellie.
