theStudio Artist of the Week…

KC Collins, Painter, Charleston, SC

What I love about KC’s work is that she has a very atmospheric approach to painting. Her paintings appear to be abstract and yet are very true to life. Her ethereal landscapes and portraits have won her several awards, most recently, she was awarded the 2010 Mayor’s Choice Award at Piccolo Spoleto and third place at the Festival of Masters in Orlando, FL.

After studying art history she was inspired by the work of JWM Turner, Franz Klein, and Gerhard Richter. Her contemporary influences included abstract landscape artists Anne Stahl and Elin Neuman.
