Katherine McNeill, a dedicated artist best known for her exquisite, vibrant, lively three dimensional oil paintings in vivid settings, from the outdoors with aspen trees and majestic mountains to splashing seascapes, larger than life floral paintings. Loosing yourself in her realistic paintings, one can almost feel and smell the mountain air, and here the quaking aspens crunch beneath your feet. Having a beautiful mystical feeling to them once in awhile you will even discover an angel hidden ever so delicately in the trees or maybe even discretely in the clouds. Her great love for the state is magnified beautifully in her aspen and mountain paintings. Katherine is mainly a "self taught" artist. She had the privilege to study under such notables as Lloyd Thorsten and the late Mickey McGuire, Quang Ho, Joesph Boehler the Arts Student League of Denver and the Colorado Institute of Art. The 19th century landscape artist Moran and Bierstadt have had been a major influence along with portrait artist John Singer Sergeant.
