Katie Dobson Cundiff
"Painting from life gives life to my paintings. Having a passion for painting and being an outdoor enthusiast is the perfect combination for being a plein air painter. Painting en plein air is the most exciting, challenging, exhilarating, and rewarding experience an artist can have behind an easel. I never leave home without my paints and brushes."

A love of the out of doors combined with her talent has produced numerous awards and recognition in plein air events. Her work also includes still life, figurative, and wildlife.
