ABOUT KATHLEEN DELLO-STRITTO:
“For the last three years I have been focused on painting trees. Approximately forty tree paintings now fill my studio. Why trees? After surgery to correct my scoliosis three years ago I realized that trees are not only archeypal symbols of life but they are also survivors…like me. I admire their individuality. I am awed by the beauty of their leaves and bark. I am enraptured by the sculptural beauty of twisted dead tree trunks. I feel their vulnerability and their strength.”
Kathleen Dello Stritto has been painting professionally for over 30 years in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. She is a member of Oil painters of America and a Signature Member of the Southwest Watercolor Society and Texas Visual Artists.
