Author: Kathleen Pequignot studio318
I'm originally from New York, where I began my art studies in traditional oil painting techniques at the Bethlehem Art Studio at the age of fourteen. In 1985 I received a BA from Stetson University in Deland, Florida in Sociology. While attending Stetson, I studied art design, watercolors, acrylics, oils, drawing, and calligraphy with Fred Messersmith. In 2007 I became certified to teach art K-12 in the Florida Public School system.
I began selling my artwork on Ebay in 1998 and later in local galleries, art fairs and on Etsy. My original art has been published by HomeGoods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Canson Art Papers, and other home decor companies.
I also love sketching from nature, experimenting with various mixed-media projects, keeping artist journals filled with illustrations and design ideas, experimenting with printmaking, and writing original poetry to accompany the visuals. Visit me on Instagram! (studio318)
