Lita Kenyon was born in Marinette, Wisconsin. She attended Columbia College for her BFA, and earned her MA from Northern Illinois University 1982. She’s been featured in Empty Mirror Magazine, Kolaj Magazine, and the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, among numerous other honors and distinctions. Of her abstract work, Kenyon says, “Each non-objective canvas begins with layers of color and line improvised and often chaotic. My palette is limited in color and value serving as a suggestion for problem solving on the canvas. The process of painting, scraping back and repainting brings each canvas to a personal stylistic statement.”
