The Artist Says:


For the past three decades, my first and foremost passion in my work is still to capture the color of the light.



Collectors Say:


I love the way she uses color. And the light! It is so beautiful and dramatic! I am hooked on the dramatic way she sees an everyday landscape.....makes you feel like you are there or want to go there.



Dealers Say:


"She has a style all her own. Her works show a color intensity and the lightness and transitory feel of watercolors. With her superb graphic skill she creates the finest color structures like magic! Her paintings seem to have an inner light with unusual compositions and lovely color harmony. " German art critic commenting on a show in a  gallery in Bad Wimpfen, Germany.



Other Artists Say:


It's all about the dramatic effect she gets with the lighting of her landscapes. They just seem to draw you in.....and they do! Her animal portraits give you the feeling that the dog or cat or whatever she is painting is going to just walk out of the canvas!



Biography


Katherine Dietzel DuTremble's work which has developed to be more refined and dramatic each year, has come to define her style. This internationally represented  and award winning artist began her artistic career at the tender age of 7. A native Louisianian, Katherine began painting in the plein aire style at historic Tropy Point located at the United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. Her parents, recognizing an early aptitude for drawing and coloring, enrolled Katherine in oil painting lessons, and so, four decades later, she has continued her artistic endeavors. She studied for a BFA in printmaking at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
Between college and her professional art career, Katherine was a professional model for the Wilhelmina Agency in New York City, where she lived in Manhattan, and took full advantage of visiting the city's well known museums. During her one year in the modeling business, she discovered that her true passion was definitely her art. She gave Wilhelmina one of her etchings, thanked her for the opportunity, and resigned her modeling contract.
 
Now residing in Charleston, South Carolina, monotypes and oils with vibrant colors and dramatic lighting occupy much of her private studio time. Described as evocative of deep emotion and mood, her work tantalizes the eye and warms the soul. Her vivid use of color enlivens the drama of her compositions of light and shadow. The viewer becomes mesmerized and can see impressionist influences. She also studied under the direction of Martin Ahrens, a fellow Louisianian, who also resided in Charleston. A well known painter instructor, who left a legacy of instruction with many Charleston painters, Katherine credits him for teaching her to see the color of light.  Martin, her mentor and teacher passed away in January 2011.
