Kit Hevron MAHONEY

Kit is an award-winning artist with over 30 years of experience who has developed her own unique contemporary, representational and abstract painting styles using a palette knife and brushes. She is a self-taught artist whose painting technique and style evolved by studying a variety of artists spanning the globe; from the Impressionists to the Abstract Expressionists, all who inspire new ideas and ways of approaching painting. Her paintings are colorful canvases filled with elements of light, shape and texture depicting her most cherished subjects including florals and landscapes.

"Painting is my form of self-expression where I have found that creating is not about changing oneself, but it is about meeting yourself." ~Kit Hevron Mahoney

"My desire is to awaken something within and speak the spirit and energy that inspired me during the creation process. As an artist my work is ever evolving. It is a continual process of reinventing myself in this ever changing world, which continually exposes us to numerous new ideas and possibilities. All of my work is a joyous and challenging expression, as it requires the painting to come from within."

Kit Hevron Mahoney uses her experience as a fine artist and graphic designer to create imagery of an interpretive nature.

"As an observer of Nature, my inspiration comes from the endless and infinite variety that she provides. It challenges me to interpret and express on canvas the glorious beauty that is found all over this world."
