Connie Kuhnle

Connie is a Michigan artist who studied art for a year at Michigan State University, then graduated from Kendall School of Art & Design with a major in illustration. She worked in the commercial art field for seven years, doing illustrations and animations.
Connie then quit working to raise her children, but continued studying fine art on her own during that time.
Connie started with watercolor paint, then went to pastel. When using pastels, she likes the layering of colors, which gives a vibration and richness to the piece. Connie also enjoys oil painting because of the texture and the feel of putting the paint down and moving it around.
Connie feels inspired by light and shadow and likes the contrast and edges she can achieve in her work.
