Denyse has always been interested in most aspects of art. After experimenting with various mediums she has come full circle back to painting, with color being the biggest focus. Since moving to Tucson in 2002, she has changed her color palette and moved out of the studio on most days to paint “plein air”. The wonderful natural surroundings and clear desert light inspires her to look for the soul of Tucson. From Southwester doorways to covered portals in traditional Barrio homes to cactus and mountain vista, she loves it all. The pattern and interplay between light and shadows is one of the things that interests her most.
