Denise Dumont is a representational painter who enjoys capturing the character and beauty of the everyday world around her. She is drawn to the coastal landscapes and cityscapes of the Atlantic Region and travels often with a sketchbook and portable easel in hand.
Denis received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design in New York City. She studied painting at the School of Visual Arts as well and frequented the studios of the Arts Students League. Her work has been largely influenced by Edward Hopper, Eouard Vuillard and Fairfield Porter.
"My favorite scenes are usually found in the light of early morning or late afternoon when the shadows are deep and dramatic." Denise often paints outdoors in the plain air tradition and works on larger canvases in the studio.
Born in New York, Denise spent her childhood on Long Island and adult years in New York City where she lived until 2004. She currently maintains a warehouse studio in Baltimore and divides her time between the beach and the metro area.
Denise's paintings are held in public and private collections in the United States. She exhibits regularly and is represented by fine art galleries in the Mid-Atlantic region.
