    Inspiration is all around Kathleen Dunphy and she immerses herself in it—from her farm complete with goats, chickens and dogs to the wider landscape surrounding her northern California home. Her large range of painting subjects include the marine environment of coastal California, the Sierra foothills and animals—both domestic and wild. Dunphy has earned signature status with the Society of Animal Artists, the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, Laguna Plein Air Painters, the American Society of Marine Artists, and Artists for Conservation. She is a member of the Plein Air Painters of America. She has received numerous national awards and is represented in galleries across the country.

   Dunphy works primarily in oils, but has recently expanded into gouache. She shares her experience and knowledge with students, and agreed to share with us as well as our featured "Voices of Experience" interviewee, starting by telling us about her life before becoming a full-time painter.
