Jennifer Howard

Jennifer Howard, a painter and graphic designer, strives to convey a textural quality in her work. She applies the paint honestly and emotionally, creating layers of color with an emphasis on capturing light. A lover of the outdoors, Jennifer has always had a need to connect with nature and found great fulfillment in plein air painting. She relishes painting in the moment and absorbing nature in all its power. Her love of nature bloomed during her childhood in the Hudson Valley and many trips to the Adirondack Mountains of New York, but after 32 years in Washington, D.C., much of her inspiration comes from the surrounding local area. Jennifer has a Bachelor of Science in graphic design from SUNY College of Buffalo and has also studied at the University of Siena, Italy; Corcoran College of Art and Yellow Barn Studio.

Kathleen Byrnes

Over the years, Kathleen Byrnes’s career has centered around art; she worked as a graphic artist, an art director for a Washington, D.C. retailer and was an art teacher. In addition to these roles, Kathleen had been painting for 45 years. Predominantly working with oils, her painting has earned her several awards. She has exhibited in both solo and group shows and her work also appears in private collections. As a plein air artist, Kathleen paints with quick but studied expression as she interprets the scenes with a signature palette. Her works explore the light and structure and unique perspectives of destinations throughout Washington, D.C. the countryside of Virginia and Maryland, as well as the inlets, towns and marshlands of Southern New Jersey and the Chesapeake Bay.
