2nd Friday - Featured Artist - Annette Kinsey

Friday, October 12, 2018

Annette Kinsey was born in Charlottesville, VA and grew up with her four siblings above the general store her parents owned in Buckingham County. During childhood, she became interested in painting while watching her mother paint. Annette attended classes with her mother using oil s, under the direction of John Mogle, an art teacher in the Buckingham County schools system. During her teenage years, she painted in watercolor and continued with watercolors for many years. After graduating high school, she moved to Lynchburg to attend Phillips Business College. She continued her interest in art and took the commercial art curriculum at Central VA Community College. In 2004, Annette began classes in pastels under Lynchburg artist Christine Rooney and still seeks his advise. In 2014 to present day, she takes classes in oils under Lynchburg artist Ron Boehmer. Annette appreciates the techniques of her teachers, also of Hopper, Daubigny, Renoir, Corot and particularly the Impressionists.
