Skilled in portraying the multifaceted landscape - its brilliance in the noonday sun; its gentle allure in the shadows - it is apparent that Rosemary Dugan sees light itself as the foremost theme of her work.
She has been a student of nature since her girlhood on a dairy farm and still treasures the park near her Wichita home for its beauty and inspiration.
Today she is an established award winning pastel painter. The strength of her message lies perhaps in its simplicity and her determination to "convey feeling" that can't be explained; yet speaks to everyone. As an impressionist, she produces strong light effects by applying medium in short strokes of pure color, causing her art to reflect a quiet dignity and spiritual strength.
