Hi my name is Lena Virginia Kilpatrick. I was born on October eleventh in the small community of Pleasantville , Tn. Being raised on a farm, myself as well as my four brothers and two sisters learned the value of hard work at an early age. We didn't have money for even small luxuries so most of the accesories in our home were made by us. My mother was an avid quilter and made all the dresses that I wore to school. I would show her a dress I liked in a catalog that came in the mail and she would sew it for me . From making the pattern to the finished product she done it all. I feel that what talent I have I inherited from my mother.
I have had a passion for drawing and painting ever since I was in the first grade but for years I didn't do anything about it . I married my dear husband of 35 years when I was 14 years old and have been busy raising 2 sons and a grandson. Now at age ? well we won't go there, I have decided to pursue my passion for art.
In the last ten years my art has attracted collectors from all over the United States as well as Australia, Italy,France , Canada, Ireland and Saudi Arabia. My paintings have found homes in personal as well as corporate collections.
I am primarily a self-taught artist and enjoy working in acrylics, oils and watercolors. I do a lot of figures, still lifes and landscapes with bright colors and strong contrast. My style of painting is basicly realism with an impressionistic flare but I have recently started working in the Fauvist and Abstract style and I think I am hooked on those to.I am constantly learning and creating new works of art and the next one I fell is allways going to be the best. Thank you for your interest in my art and If you have any questions please email them to email@example.com.
