Kathy Delumpa Allegri, Artist
Artist, Writer, and Time Traveler in the United States
I strive to express relationships--how entities interact through shadow and light, reflections, movement, and color. I paint in watercolor and acrylic en plein air, outdoors. Understanding science, being in Nature as much as possible, and personal victory over cancer inspire my vision and creative journey.
My Heritage and Healing Series of water media paintings are of places, people, and things that I know.
I began art and foreign language studies at the University of California, Davis. I focused on raising my family while working as a graphic artist and resumed completion of my Bachelor of Science in Art at Colorado State University. I taught for many years at a community college and painted historic murals in California and Oregon.
My plein air workshops on Maui and Kaua`i honor the mana (spirit) of the islands and its people. Rather than call attention to ourselves, we observe and blend in with the natural ambiance that surrounds us, to learn as much as we can about the rich, indigenous culture, with humility and respect.
I design clothing accessories for Vida (San Francisco), continue to dance hula, and travel as much as possible. Visit Columbia River Gallery in Troutdale, Oregon to purchase my original watercolors of the Columbia Gorge and other regional themes. Prints of some of my paintings are available through Fine Art America.
Because life is a canvas that awaits wonder, play, creativity, and passion, I draw or paint almost daily.
